   SIS Profile Information

You can access the My Profile page by clicking your photo from the left menu, in which you can review your personal record stored in Student Information System (SIS).  You can also update your contact address, mobile phone number, and emergency contact in SIS via the app anywhere anytime.

   E-Identity Card

You can view the “digital copy” of your student ID card on the App. You can also review your current program information by clicking on the e-card.  The project team is working closely with other offices and parties to enrich the usage of the e-Card in the future. 

(Note: Currently, you still need to present your physical student card to access some facilities such as the Library, classroom, department rooms and laboratory.)

   Learning Experience

You can use the App to browse courses catalog, access class schedules and their latest quota for current and/or upcoming terms; review your current class enrollment in weekly calendar; list out your examination schedule; and browse your course grades, TGA and CGA. All this information is retrieved from SIS in real time.  Today’s upcoming class and exam schedule will also be displayed as upcoming events on the home page of the App.  The App also links to external App or web sites such as Canvas, Timetable Planner and Library. 
 

It is expected that you could add or drop classes directly from the App in 2020-2021 Summer term.

   Security and Privacy

Protecting your personal and academic records is in the highest priority of designing the App. Besides using your ITSC account with 2FA to log in the App, you may enable an additional passcode to lock the App whenever you close the App or sent the App to background.  You need to input the correct passcode to unlock and re-open the App. 

Instead of browsing the menu and select a frequently used functions every time, on the home page of the App, you could set at most six shortcuts to access particular functions directly.  When you installed the App, five default shortcuts are provided.  You could access “Settings > Edit Homepage Dashboard” to change target of each shortcut.
