Enhancing the Aurora Experience: A New Chapter Begins

March 8, 2024 — 

We’re excited to introduce the New Aurora Launch page, aimed at enhancing your user experience with a range of exciting features and enhancements. Whether you’re a student starting your academic journey or a staff member guiding the process, these updates are crafted to make navigating Aurora smoother and more intuitive than ever. 

For staff members, existing features are easily accessible through the “Aurora Classic Card” from the New Aurora Launch page. 

Students can anticipate a combination of new features and familiar tools, promising a more streamlined academic journey. Notably, we’ve transitioned to email authentication for logging in, eliminating the need for PIN codes and simplifying the process. 


Upon logging in, take a moment to familiarize yourself with the interface: 

  • Select the Aurora Classic card for current functions. 
  • Explore additional resources that connect to external sources beyond the Aurora platform, including UM Learn, Email, and SharePoint. 

List of supports available to staff: 

Faculty and staff can expect more user experience and functionality improvements in the coming year. These changes aim to simplify tasks and make Aurora easier to use. Feedback from faculty and staff will help guide these updates, ensuring they meet the needs of everyone using the platform. 

Join us as we embark on this modernization journey, aiming to enhance efficiency and user satisfaction. Together, let’s embrace this exciting evolution of Aurora.
