My MLC Portal
MLC is a vibrant all-girls’ boarding and day school that has been offering girl-centric education for more than a century. Each and every MLC girl is special, and we celebrate her individual gifts and talents. This same attitude extends to her parents and our staff members; every MLC community member is unique and deserves to be treated as such.
The College released its new 10-year Strategic Plan in late 2014, which included a new Vision, Mission and Values. The aspirations of MLC were reinvigorated, fresh and progressive. The new Vision and goals are clear, direct, ambitious and focused on the MLC girls. Each and every MLC girl is special, and we celebrate her individual gifts and talents. This same attitude extends to her parents and our staff members; every MLC community member is unique and deserves to be treated as such.
Our Information and Learning Technology Strategic Plan embodies that attitude, with the strategy focused on personalised, ubiquitous access to technology for each community member, enabling our students to “Learn Everywhere” in a highly mobile world.
Over the past 18 months we have been working on enhancing our College’s online resource offerings. At the centre of the project sits My MLC, which consists of our weekly newsletter, the “Wyvern”, a parent handbook and links to academic and pastoral information to apprise parents of their daughter’s learning progress. Feedback from our community drove the project, with data from our College-wide stakeholder surveys, project-specific focus groups and analytics data from existing web properties shaping the direction of the project.
Our priority throughout the project was to make it as easy as possible for our users to find information relevant to them. The answer to this challenge was to tailor the online experience for each and every user to enable them to view information that is directly applicable to their needs.
Wyvern exemplifies our users’ tailored experience, producing a newsletter that contains exactly what a parent needs to know for the week ahead. Information only applicable to a parents’ year groups will be displayed as the system builds a bespoke newsletter for that user each week.
Finally, the Handbook offers a library of information and links to help any user find what they’re looking for. My MLC and the Wyvern complement a variety of existing services that provide personalised access to information and resources at MLC.
