The portal is a tab within Blackboard that is provided for a School to deliver important School or Department wide information and news.
The portal for a School can be made up of several pages and different sections for different audiences e.g. undergraduate or postgraduate students. This information is updated and administered by staff within the School and the Student Support Centres.
Permissions to edit sections of the portal are delegated and provided by one or more local portal administrators. All Programmes Managers and Senior Programme Administrators within the Support Centre have the Portal Admin role for the Schools which they support.
The following guides are for staff with the Portal Admin role:
