June 17, 2021 - Upgraded WakeID Portal Launches on June 30

  • Based on feedback from staff members and students, Technology Services will release an upgraded version of the WakeID Portal that will be easier to use and offer additional helpful features.

    You will still log in at wakeid.wcpss.net and use your same login information. This will take you to an application launch pad, where you will be able to click on apps and open them without having to re-enter your username and password. The new portal will also allow you to save login information for access to other applications from a single location.

    The new portal allows you greater capacity to customize and organize your apps to suit your needs.

    It also includes some additional new features:

    • My Classes, aka The Backpack: Teachers can go here to list the applications they use for each class. This makes it easy for each student to know which apps to use. Teachers can also click into each class and see the student login and activity time within each application. Students can click on their Backpack, choose their class(es) and see what applications the teacher will use.
    • My Files: This feature displays Google Drive and OneDrive together within the WakeID Portal.
    • My Analytics: This feature allows students to track their usage.

    This brief video will walk you through all the new features.

    The new WakeID Portal will launch on June 30. The current portal will not be available for a brief time at the end of the month to allow for the transition.
