Updates to the myday student portal from Microsoft Education partner Collabco

Offering a wide choice of ‘click-through’ links to everything the student needs in order to organise and do their work on a daily basis, the myday student portal from Microsoft Education partner Collabco is a popular choice in Higher Education. When our guest writer Gerald Haigh spoke with Bishop Grosseteste University's Head of IT Richard Corn earlier in the year, it was clear to see the positive impact myday had had on not only students, but also the IT staff.

We're now pleased to share details of the latest updates and improvements to myday, directly from the team at Collabco:


Many UK institutions are looking to student portals as a way of improving student participation. Easily customisable for both the faculty and students, myday is a turnkey solution which can be deployed and functional across an institution in less than a month.

This ‘quick start’ feature of myday is because Collabco are well aware of what institutions are looking for in the first instance. Hooking straight into the student experience, myday provides a good blend of organisation and information, including these essential features:

  • Integration with VLEs such as Moodle, BlackBoard & Canvas with Single Sign On from myday
  • Office 365 integration including calendar and email with easy, single sign-on access
  • User personalisation – users can choose their own layout, theme and colours
  • Social media integration - Twitter, Facebook – no need to follow or like
  • Extensive targeting of content across the myday platform
  • Multi-language support, great for Welsh institutions, as well as international students
  • Notification platform – news, timetable changes or upcoming events all pushed to your mobile
  • Extensible platform – develop your own myday apps!

In addition to the impressive feature set, what makes myday an incredibly attractive option to HE institutions is the speed with which it can be deployed, as highlighted by Bishop Grosseteste University’s Head of IT – Richard Corn. Richard was impressed by the speed and efficiency of the installation, commenting that “The main implementation took only twenty-eight days.”

More than just a simple a portal, myday offers all of the this functionality from a web browser or via a native app on your mobile phone delivering a consistent, targeted and personal experience on any device. As part of the Microsoft Partner network, myday is a trusted solution which has been used and proven to work far longer than many other solutions.

If you'd like to find out more, you can get in touch directly with the team at Collabco who will happily provide you with access to their demo portal to see for yourself.
