The myUSO website is a secure application launcher and bookmarking service accessible to all pupils and staff members in USO-enabled schools. myUSO presents a simple, convenient and organised route to managing online resources for schools by creating a publishable ‘Home page’ from which staff and pupils can easily access all USO authenticated services, as well as other web-based services.
This service allows school staff to create and manage a set of links to online learning resources for their pupils. As a result, all resources needed by pupils during the school day can be grouped by class and accessible via a single login. Groups can contain links to USO-authenticated and non-USO resources, including services hosted within the school. Each user, staff or pupil also has the option to create lists of personal useful links which is accessible only to them. The site also contains a staff notice board where internal messages can be posted for colleagues to find in the course of the working day.
Authentication is done via USO account credentials for adults and older pupils, and by a simplified login system for younger users.
