Raiderlink and WebRaider are portals that serve as front-door entry points to the Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center’s wealth of information.
The word portal may induce thoughts of the Sci-Fi channel and galactic travel, but a different kind of portal serves as entry to Texas Tech University’s wealth of information and resources.
Raiderlink and WebRaider are the Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center's portals respectively. They provide a front-door entry for doing tasks or business with Texas Tech as students, faculty and staff.
Imagine these portals as the kiosks to their respective institutions, kiosks whose main purpose is to directly point users in the direction of information or resources. With a single sign-in, Raiderlink and WebRaider provide access to student information, administration and finance information, tools and services, reporting capabilities, search engines, local weather forecasts and much more.
What’s more, like all online applications these days, the portals are customizable to user preference. Users can manage the amount, type and layout of the content that their portal will display, a feature that is sure to please users who are looking for a one-stop-shop for information and resources.
Unlike those portrayed on the Sci-Fi channel, these portals can be accessed by simply logging on with an eRaider account – no space ship required.
Visit Raiderlink or WebRaider for all your on and off campus needs.
