Web Portals

Learning Portals for K-12 Schools

Easily create one-stop, simple-to-manage learning portals.

Use a Microsoft SharePoint-based learning portal to:

  • Post coursework
  • Track and share student progress
  • Power online collaboration
  • Automate reporting and meet standards

Deliver anytime learning, and help simplify administration

Make e-learning easy with centralized portals.
Give teachers and students a single place to distribute, complete, and collect assignments; share and take quizzes or tests; post classroom schedules; register online; access applications; connect via instant messaging, voice, or video; and more. It's easy to create web-based portals (intranet, extranet, or Internet) with Microsoft SharePoint Server or SharePoint Online.

Track performance, and automate reporting.
Easily create learning dashboards that aggregate student test results at a glance and automate required reporting for local, state, and federal standards. With Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft SQL Server, you can build a robust data infrastructure, dashboards, and reporting that deliver transparency into program effectiveness and help inform routine decisions and long-range strategic planning.

Sign on from anywhere.
Educators and students can log on to a SharePoint-based class portal from any Internet-connected device using a single, secure sign-on.

Do more across your virtual campus.
From lunch orders to web-based class registration, a portal becomes a common gateway to the data and services that people across campus need. Add and customize published content, including research and course work. Search and discover learning content across the institution. Even settle accounts—all without leaving the portal.

Use what you have.
Extend the value of your existing IT investments. Powerful education portals can be built on technologies you may already have, such as Microsoft SharePoint, Windows Server, and Microsoft SQL Server.

Grow on your terms.
Simple enough for novices, robust enough for power users, a portal based on Microsoft technology gives you a scalable, standards-based platform. Start small, and roll out new features and functionality as schedules and budgets permit. You can also work directly with a Microsoft partner to get a solution tailored for your learning community. Our partners are experts in working with the SharePoint Portal Server platform and using out-of-the-box components to customize a learning management system for a fraction of the cost of a traditional system with the same features.
