About using MyEd
Advice on using MyEd.
When you login to MyEd, you login to Your University Login, which is our reduced-sign-on-service. This allows you to access to a range of services, some of which contain personal information about yourself and others. When you have finished using MyEd, make sure that you logout, and that you also logout from Your University Login and close your browser.
- Lock your computer if you need to leave it unattended while logged in.
- When using a public computer, use Private or Incognito browsing so that your username and password are not stored in the browser history.
- If in doubt at anytime, log out from MyEd and close the browser window.
You can use your browser settings to alter the appearance of MyEd to make it easier to read and navigate. A link with more information about how to do this is below.
Channels and portlets both refer to the blocks of content that appear within MyEd. For example, when you login you see the Email 'portlet', which shows a link to your inbox, and allows you to preview your email.
In an older version of MyEd these blocks of content were called 'channels'. They are now called 'portlets', but you may see the term 'channel' sometimes.
MyEd presents different information to different users; for example a student sees different content to a staff member.
You can customise your homepage by using Favourites. Content that you favourite appears in the Favourites portlet on your homepage, making it quick and easy to access the content you use most often.

Older versions of MyEd allowed you to add tabs and change the portlets that displayed on some tabs. You can't do this any more but the new menu makes it easier to find and access content.
