Welcome to the Porthole!

Welcome to Cal Maritime's Porthole!  The Porthole is an intranet web environment provided by the California Maritime Academy so that focused and personalized communications can go out to students, faculty, and staff. It allows students, faculty, staff to manage academic, social and administrative information.

A powerful feature of the Porthole is that it is a single web based application that has the ability to run multiple web applications that a user needs. The Porthole interface helps you create and edit the look and feel of web pages and to manage them.  You can add content and functionality to pages with any programming involved.  We invite you to become involved in communities that already exist or create a new community to foster collaboration in a campus organization, committee or club.

More documenting is being produced daily.  Please visit this page again soon!
