The Cal Poly Pomona community now has a new online service, providing one source for students to access the university’s online portals with just one login.
MyCPP is an application that allows students, staff and faculty access to university services like BroncoDirect, Blackboard, MyBAR, BroncoConnection, Lynda tutorials, and student email all through this one simple source.
Instead of entering a BroncoName and password multiple times, users only have to enter it once for access.
In addition to these portals, MyCPP also has links to other services, including eHelp, Master Calendar and Ask Billy Bronco, as well as feeds for PolyCentric and Bronco Athletics stories.
The MyCPP portal also allows you to view CPP email, but is unable to send messages.
MyCPP is accessible at my.cpp.edu, or in the link on the Online Services page on the university website.
Having to log into many different pages for different campus-related services can be overwhelming for students. The purpose of MyCPP is to create one single source for students to go to for campus online services.
The application serves primarily to make students online life easier and to put an end to the excessive logging in to a variety of different services.
MyCPP was launched Nov. 17, so many students have still not heard of or tested out MyCPP yet.
Alberto Cerda, a first-year anthropology student, did not seem too familiar with the new service.
“I have heard of MyCPP, but have not used it yet,” said Cerda. “I see the advertisements and billboards around campus displaying ‘MyCPP,’ but right now, I just go to each page separately like Blackboard and BroncoDirect.
“I don’t know much about it, but I know it’s supposed to be a convenient use for everything since it has BlackBoard and BroncoDirect and other things together.”
Because MyCPP is such a new application to CPP’s online services, a majority of students either have not heard of the application or have not gotten around to checking it out yet.
Maria Munoz, a second-year graphic design student has not used MyCPP yet, but looks forward to the trying it out in the future.
“I haven’t used it before but it sounds a lot more convenient since we can access all our online services in one place,” said Munoz. “It should be a big hit, because people are lazy and this makes life a whole lot easier.”
MyCPP will continue to add more online services and apps as time progresses and it gains more popularity.
The Division of Informational Technology anticipates this portal to expand and grow throughout the year, both in features and popularity.
