LBCC released a new student portal to be used for students to easily access class schedules and maps of the college.
The college released its new student portal Monday, May 4 as a source for easier access when enrolling and finding out the latest news about the school.
The communications department at LBCC decided it was time to advance its resources and develop a user-friendly website to access school schedules and links. The Windows 8-like site includes links to class catalogue, interactive maps and radio and TV tabs for entertainment. The name of the website is my.lbcc.edu.
A spokes person from the communications department was contacted and talked about why the school needs a separate website when most of the links can be found on the school’s homepage.
The spokesperson said, “It’s cutting edge and user-friendly.”
He also talked about if the portal could potentially lead to an app for the college and said, “It’s very possible. We want to see how other students react and then decide later on if we should make this into an app or not.”
