Team # 473 -- Penn State Portal
Information Technology Services (ITS)

February 2002


The Penn State Portal provides its users with a personal "one stop shopping" view of University and Internet resources. Similar to My Netscape or My Yahoo!, Penn State Portal users can chose the information that is most important and interesting to them by adding and removing built-in content "containers" called channels. Content such as news, career planning and services, weather, Web cameras, The Daily Collegian, event calendars, and much more, allow users to build their very own Web environment.
