What Are Applications?
Applications (synonymous with portlets) are small “gadgets” or programs that you can place on your page.
On the MyCollege portal, they look like little windows or screens that are placed around the pages. Below you can see an example of my blog page with all sorts of apps on it. Usually apps have a header (a black bar with gold text) that tells you what that application is or has been named. The very text that you are reading has been placing in a Web Content Display application.
Some applications are locked to students but there are plenty available to make your pages useful, interesting and personal. To read an overview of what kind of applications are available to you check out Applications Overview below.
There are a wide variety of applications, or portlets, that are available for you to put on your page. This section gives you an overview of some of your options.
How Do I Set Up An Application?
Adding An Application
To place an application, navigate to the page you would like to add the application to. Go to Menu and select Add Application (see first image below). The Add App screen will pop up (see second image below). You can select your application by moving through the categories or by typing the name of your application in the search box.
Placing An Application
To place an application on your page, select it from the list and drag it onto the page (see image below).
Changing Page Layout
For this tutorial, I have added a Message Board to an otherwise empty page and now I will change the page layout so my Message Board fills up the whole page. I go up to Menu and select Layout Template . This will bring me to the Layout Screen (see image). I click the circle next to 1 Column and click Save. Now my Message Board App fills the entire page.
