Feedback on the Student eServices

 One Stop Information Desktop

The Student eServices provides a single interface to the various different online services and information resources on campus. The advantage of the intranet is in the richness of personalised information to facilitate staff and students in their daily tasks.

Information common to all would be system alerts, campus announcements, links to campuswide services, departmental pages (if any), announcements. Personalised information would be your own email, library loans, fines, academic timetable and personal bookmarks. "Rate this site" will help the campus gauge the usefulness of various services.

Students would be able to access their timetables, eLearning modules, NPal Student records, staff directory, staff accessibility, mentor list, student discussion eforum, buy-n-sell marketplace. Search is a feature which allows students to search information within NP Website, Student Intranet, the World Wide websites or all of the above.

 Security : Auto Logout after 20 Mins

From the results of our eMail Poll in Feb 2005, we're pleased to inform you that the inactivity time-out period for Student eMail has been revised to 1-hour.

When accessing your NPNet mailbox directly, your session will only time out after 1 hour of inactivity. This means that you can take up to 1 hour to compose your email. You can also choose to login directly from the MAIL link on the NP Student Portal page.

Inactivity means there is no data exchange between your computer and the server. Furiously typing at the keyboard alone is not counted as "active".

Independent timeout session for different services (MeL, eMail etc)
The time-out of the Student eServices and other services (when accessed through Student eServics after login with single sign-on feature) is independent of each other. ie. The inactivity time-out from student intranet will not time-out the eMail session which has a 1 hour inactivity time-out setting and also the MeL eLearning which has a 3 hours inactivity time-out setting to cater to students taking online quizzes

For security reasons, your Intranet session will automatically time out after 20 minutes of inactivity. The 20 minute time-out feature applies to Student eServices and NPal Student system. This is to prevent unauthorised access of personal data (eg Exam Results & Student Progress) when staff/student forgets to logout after using.

When you try to access a link from the Student eServices after the system time out, you will be prompted with the Student eServices Login screen. Please relogin.
