ITS is pleased to announce myHome 2.0, with two major new features, Community and Mobile, coming Monday, 8/24.
myHome Community is a new component for social networking exclusively within the Ithaca College community. myHome Community offers many "Facebook-like" tools such as friends, discussion forums, photo albums, polls, status updates, and much more, all within the familiarity of the IC environment. These tools are designed to increase interactions and connections across our campus community by allowing faculty, staff and students to find others with common interests.
All faculty, staff and students will start with a basic Community profile based on their Ithaca College directory information. This profile is highly customizable if the user chooses to expand it. There is no requirement to use or customize the Community component, but everyone is encouraged to explore this new feature.
myHome Mobile provides the ability to access many of the myHome features and information services such as Intercom, Oracle Calendar, news feeds and other portlets from a mobile smartphone. myHome Mobile uses the device's Web browser, and works best with new generation devices such as the iPhone, Blackberry and other smartphones.
myHome will be unavailable the morning of 8/24 while the new version is implemented, but rest assured that all of your current settings and customizations will convert to the new version.
Feedback about myHome is always welcome. Submit your comments via the The myHome Portlet located in the lower right of the main myHome tab, or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
