District portal opens

The “MySitePortal” system due out as a beta at the end of summer session 2009 has finally arrived, albeit with a different name.

The district launched “InSite Portal” on Feb. 17.

Once logged in students are greeted by the current weather stats for DVC and LMC as well as the Brentwood and San Ramon satellites. A monthly calendar also shows the user’s upcoming classes, listed as “Events”.

Though there is still some work to do on the site, even now it contains links to campus services, student clubs, DVC press releases and a link to the Inquirer.

Daniel Abbott, the district’s director of administrative information systems, said the delay was due to concerns about the performance of certain key areas of the system, which uses Microsoft SharePoint technology to display information retained by the district’s Datatel Colleague Student Information System.

An additional SharePoint expert was hired to resolve the problems, Abbott said.

Go to to get into the new website and use your current username and password from WebAdvisor for the log-in information.

Abbott urged students using the site to continuously check back for updates. Comments and concerns about the new system are welcomed by the development team, he said.

And the best part?
