Kean University supplies their students with different tools and technology that will enhance their learning experience. Below are just three of the many tools that Kean University has available.
Kean University partnered with Google to provide efficient and easy-to-use applications to all Kean University affiliates, calling it KEANGoogle. Applications such as Google mail, Google drive, Google calendars, Google+ and now Google classroom are part of KEANGoogle.
A Google email address is assigned to all students, staff and faculty providing them with 30 GB of inbox storage; which is more than enough space to store all proper files. The KEANGoogle interface is very similar to the regular Gmail interface.
To activate a KEANGoogle account, first the Kean University username will need to be entered and the password provided from the office of computer and information services (OCIS).
If there are any problems logging in, please contact OCIS by phone at 908-737-6000.
Blackboard is primarily known as developmental and educational software that Kean University utilizes. All registered classes appear on Blackboard. Some professors utilize the software while others do not. Blackboard provides students with dates, grades, announcements and tasks assigned by the professor.
First visit the blackboard website and then enter a username and password. (When writing the username don’t include the @kean.edu.) Once logged-in, all the classes a student is registered for will be under “my courses” on the right hand side of the page.
If a professor activated the Blackboard page for his or her course, a student will be able to click on the course they wish to look into. Information, announcements and due dates can be found on the home page of Blackboard.
If there are any problems logging in, contact the OCIS office at 908-737-6000.
All students can utilize Web Advisor, most commonly referenced as KeanWISE; KeanWISE provides students access to their financial information, financial aid, registration, academic profile, as well as any residence life related information. Documents such as a student’s unofficial transcript, housing application, grades, schedules and more can also be found on KeanWISE.
Managing KeanWISE is not too difficult. First visit the KeanWISE homepage. Then click “log in,” and enter the proper Kean University username and password. The main menu will appear first.
Please visit the Kean University homepage for more information about any of the above programs.
