What is ?

Enables Henley College students to access their course information and resources.
It can contain anything put there by any of your tutors for your use.

It is a bit like the P-Drive, and this web-site, all rolled into one password-protected website,
accessible to students and staff from any internet-connected computer in the world,
using their normal college logon Username and Password.

All future assignments etc, set by me, will go on the LearnZone, not this website.
This website will continue to be used for non-confidential material, and items which might interest parents.
If parents would like to view LearnZone items, please contact the course co-ordinator

When entering LearnZone,
log in with your usual college username & password,
then go to the GNVQ L&T. Tutorial area (labelled with my name).
Some units are not yet properly titled.
Try "LearnZone" now

WEBMAIL
Allows Henley College students to access their College email, and other facilities, from anywhere in the world.
Forget Googlemail, Hotmail, etc. Henley College Webmail is better!

When entering Webmail,
log in with the Domain\username henleycol\ (notice the backslash) followed by
your usual college username, like this henleycol\ub1234
Then use your normal college password.
