Beginning Feb. 1, MUSC users of the web-based E*Value evaluation system will have one fewer set of computer access codes to remember.
On Feb 1, the E*Value login will be upgraded for MUSC users through a NetID-integrated login. Using their MUSC NetIDs and passwords, users will be able to access a new internal-to-MUSC E*Value portal — http://evalue.musc.edu — linking them not only to their accounts in E*Value but also to other evaluation tools, resources and support services. The changes are expected to impact more than 7,000 users including students, residents, faculty and course administrators.
Icons on Lynx workstations pointing to E*Value also will be updated Feb. 1 to refer to the new portal. Users who have the old E*Value home page bookmarked in their browsers can update their bookmarks now, as the new portal is already in operation. Attempts to login directly at the old E*Value home page (using access codes private to the E*Value system and not integrated with NetID) will be redirected to the new portal.
Users who login to E*Value by clicking on links in emails will find that login method unaffected by the move to the NetID-integrated login.
Larry Afrin, M.D., Graduate Medical Education (GME) director of informatics and chair of the E*Value Integrated Login Task Force, is among other staff providing technical guidance. "E*Value has served us well, but this upgrade will make it a bit easier for our users to live in a world where seemingly almost every task involves interacting with a computer system. The upgrade will also improve the overall security of the NetID system.
"We have been preparing for this upgrade for a long time, and we expect it to cause little to no disruption to normal operation," Afrin noted. "Users of E*Value who encounter difficulty (now or after Feb. 1) logging into E*Value through the new portal should contact their program, course, or college E*Value administrators."
Changes to E*Value Login
What is happening? A new portal for logging into E*Value by use of your MUSC NetID.
Why is this happening? Reduce the number of user IDs a person needs to remember to access systems that are important.
Who will be affected? Anyone at MUSC who presently accesses E*Value by logging in at the vendor's homepage, https://www.e-value.net.
Where will this site be located? The dedicated webpage will be found at http://evalue.musc.edu. Users will log in to this page using their MUSC NetID. Although "go-live" for NetID integrated login begins Feb. 1, interested users can try it now at http://evalue.musc.edu and update their bookmarks.
When will this take place? The start date is Feb. 1.
How can questions be answered? There is a FAQ section on the MUSC E*Value portal, http://evalue.musc.edu or individuals may contact their college or program's workplace E*Value coordinator.
