Q: I heard the word "portlet" used. What does that mean?

Portlets are small web applications that run in a portion of a web page.  They are also referred to as applications.


Q: What is the QuickLaunch Navigation Application?

Quick Launch icons, or External Applications, provide access to commonly used applications such as Exchange, Blackboard, SOAR, etc., with a single click. The icons are placed in the top left corner of the Home page (i.e., landing page).  In most cases these will be Single-Sign-On to allow you to gain access to the application via your portal username and password, without maintaining separate sets of credentials. Some of the External Applications will be configured as Non-Common sign-on, meaning that the first time you click on the icon to access that application via the portal, you will be prompted to enter your username and password for that application. After this initial login, the portal will store your credentials, and you will be able to access the application by simply clicking on the icon, without entering your credentials.

Q: Why do I receive a message about secure and non-secure items when I use myCampus Portal?  How do I turn them off?

The myJCC portal uses encryption to make sure that your data is secured.  Some of our portlets pull in information from external sites (RSS feeds / Top Stories, weather, etc.) and this information is not encrypted. That's what generates the warning. To turn off this warning message, click here
