BRISTOL, Tenn. – As students and faculty return to campus for the fall 2013 semester,
they will discover a new time-saving web tool designed to combine access to many of
King’s services into one portal – my.king.edu.
Through the new portal, access is individualized to the student or faculty member’s
needs. Some of the features will include email access, Blackboard, registration,
class schedules, online bookstore access, and financial aid. With these features
combined into one portal, only one password is needed to access all the information.
“This new online platform is continuing to grow and become feature rich,” said Phil
Bailey, deputy chief information officer for King University. “My.king.edu is the electronic gateway to King University’s online resources. In the coming year,
we hope to add all the online services students need into this portal.”
One additional feature of the new portal is the announcement tool, which gives faculty
and staff the ability to communicate with students in a personalized way based upon
their groupings. For example, Student Affairs can develop and send a message through
the new portal, my.king.edu, to only traditional freshman concerning the upcoming
Experience D.C. trip. This feature helps to streamline communication and eliminate unnecessary emails
to groups for which the message does not pertain.
After sophomore Physics major Elizabeth Byrd had the opportunity to utilize the new
portal, she commented, “It is extremely easy to get on [to my.king.edu] and register for classes. For instance, yesterday, I registered for a class on
my phone in two minutes. I think it’s very efficient and will make things a lot easier.”
My.king.edu is accessible to students, faculty, and staff by means of a computer as well as mobile
computing devices including mobile phones and tablets.
