The Faculty Dashboard provides the faculty member with a
quick, easy tool for viewing active classes, faculty detail schedule,
class list, wait list (if applicable), syllabus information, office hours
and a way to email the entire class. This information can be sorted by
term or subject code.

Dashboard is the first channel on the left column.

syllabus information, learning objectives, required materials, and

In normal circumstances, you would probably use Webmail (webmail.stonehill.edu ). However, if you need to use myHill to email your class from home, you must first establish a VPN
connection (Virtual Private Network). The VPN network establishes a
"secure tunnel" for your computer on the Stonehill network and allows
you to use the exchange server to email your students. Once VPN
connectivity has been established, you can start Outlook to check or
compose messages. If you login to myHill, you can also use any of the
email links to send messages to your students.
