New online student portal includes COVID-19 symptom tracker

Radford University introducing OneCampus, a “modern, mobile-friendly online portal that will streamline the way users access and connect with many of the University’s campus services”.

OneCampus will replace MyRU later this year.

“The upgrade is necessary due to the outdated interface and technology behind MyRU,” according to a statement from the university.

OneCampus is a “virtual hub where students, faculty, staff and administrators can access dozens of campus directories, notifications, applications and useful information relevant to daily campus life.” The portal links users to everything from email to “Handshake, Desire 2 Learn (D2L) and the newly implemented COVID-19 Symptom Tracker.”

“Information Technology Services is pleased to introduce the new campus portal, OneCampus, to the University community,” said Ed Oakes, associate vice president for Information Technology Services and CIO. “This upgrade reflects our commitment to providing the campus community with the latest technologies and tools that support success, inside and outside of the classroom. This new system is more mobile-friendly and provides the campus community with the ability to quickly search and find the correct system or link to conduct business.”

“OneCampus has a modern and manageable interface, as well as a powerful search capability. It is hosted on Amazon Web Services – a secure and widely used hosting platform,” according to information released by RU. “A standout feature of the portal includes the ability to mark “favorites” for quick access to commonly used services. OneCampus is also fully mobile-responsive, allowing users on different devices to enjoy the same experience.”

MyRU will remain available to users until October 2020.
