PirateNet Sign-In and Service Messages

Keep a pirate’s eye on the sign-in link, technology homepage and technology Twitter feed for a few changes and updates this August.

New Sign-In Window
Screen Shot 2013-08-16 at 1.15.59 PMOne the most popular clicks visitors make on the Seton Hall website is PirateNet, the link currently in the upper right of most of our pages used to sign in. From here you can access services like your email, Blackboard or the full PirateNet portal. We recently updated the sign in process to include a page of service choices.

In our efforts to continually enhance and improve user experience, we’re changing the behavior of the link to display a “modal”, or floating window, with these same key services — along with links to our mobile applications and technology Twitter feed.

Integrated Messaging
Featured services, such as registration, will appear at different times on the modal window to help you get where you need to be quickly.

If there are any technology problems affecting services you normally utilize, the sign-in window will also feature a message to alert you of reported issues.

System and Service Status Updates
The new sign-in window isn’t the only place to find out if any systems or services are currently under maintenance or unavailable. Follow Seton Hall’s technology Twitter account for messages — or visit technology.shu.edu and check the lower left-hand corner for our most recent status alerts.

Next Steps
As an extension of the ongoing web redesign project and our mission to provide the best user experience to our community, we’re working on new sign-in landing pages for all our services — and bringing content together through single-sign-on technologies. Stay tuned!
