As we dive into the new semester, we will also begin to understand how to navigate the newly launched MyWilson Portal and app. According to James D’Annibale, Director of Educational Technology at Wilson, the update is meant to encourage student engagement and to aid in decluttering inboxes.
Including a social media aspect for portal and the app allows the chance for students to talk about issues in a space where faculty can be made better aware of the issues and take action. D’Annibale cites that in the commuter group students have already begun to use the update to inquire more about parking, sparking conversation with the parking committee.
In addition to groups for commuters and residential students, there are plans to create official groups for all clubs on campus, however the date of that update is TBD. In order to ease the pain of figuring out how to use the new portal, D’Annibale suggests utilizing the Favorites tab and the Search bar.
