A student portal is a commonly used phrase to describe the login page where students can provide a user name and password to gain access to an education organization’s programs and other learning related materials.
For example, a learner who has enrolled in an online certification program may use a student portal to access online course materials, such as articles, lectures and videos, hosted on the school’s servers. Student portals may be used to provide information about the school, special events, course details, calendars, academic resources and contact information.
Some student portals may integrate with other systems to provide students with easy access to personal information, such as as tracking bursary awards and campus medical insurance.
