Penn State Portal updated

August 28, 2003

The Penn State Portal has a new face. Users are now greeted by 12 new interface themes, which include nine color themes and three Penn State themes. The themes have been designed in response to user feedback and aim to improve the portal's usability. Updated controls also have been implemented, giving users the ability to more quickly and easily edit channels and access online help and documentation. In addition to its visual enhancements, the portal now provides more than 380 channels of Penn State and external content including: news; student services; printing account status channel; an Office of Human Resources job search channel; an enhanced PASS Explorer, the portal's built-in secure file transfer tool, which now enables users to transfer multiple files to personal, departmental and other PASS-based Web space at one time; enhanced personal calendaring; and more.
