My Portal is an app built for students, by students. Students at Daystar University in Kenya were looking for a way to keep track of their schedule and academic progress, and thus the idea for the My Portal app was born. My Portal is available on Google Play.
According to club member Michael Bukachi, “My Portal is an app created by students to make the lives of other students easier.” The app syncs with the student’s school information and, once synced, that information can be accessed even without connecting to the internet.
The app gives students easy access to their schedule, grades (for current and completed courses), and even financial information such as the student’s fees balance. Putting all of this information in one place can significantly ease the burden of keeping track of everything related to academics in the hectic life of a student.
