Web Portals

Make e-learning easy with centralized portals

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

Give teachers, faculty, and students a single place to:

  • Distribute, complete, and collect assignments
  • Take quizzes or tests

  • Register online
  • Access applications
  • Connect via instant messaging, voice, or video

It's easy to create web-based portals (intranet, extranet, or internet) with Microsoft SharePoint Server or SharePoint Online. 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.
