While the myHome Blog has been idle for the past few months, we've been busy preparing the next version of myHome. Around the time everyone is back on campus, myHome 2.0 will launch with some great new features including the myHome Community and mobile access.
::embed_1::Integrated within myHome itself will be the new myHome Community, bringing every student, faculty member, and staff member together online for the first time. By providing a place for you to make connections, meet new people, and have active discussions, you can foster relationships on campus that never would have been possible before.
At launch you'll be able to make friends, post status updates, create and participate in polls, and post in forums. While we recognize the similarities to other social networks, myHome Community will allow for a central location to foster those relationships just within the IC community that might not make sense on another social network.
Ever need to access your Oracle Calendar schedule on the go, or do a quick directory search for your professor's office? myHome Mobile will bring the myHome experience to your very own smartphone. You'll be able to browse your portlets and tabs, read the IC Message Center, and set up "Favorite" portlets -- a feature only available to mobile users that provides front-page shortcuts to your favorite portlets.
We're very excited about these new features and can't wait to have all of you try them out. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we'll see you all back on campus soon!
