Class is in session at UT Tyler, and students now have one more tool to succeed, KYTX reports. It’s called my e.d.u.com. It’s a new online system that allows students to keep track of their college activities, events, accomplishments and more. Schools under the UT college system are using the program to help students succeed, during and after college. “An employer can actually look at their my EDU portfolio and it’s kinda like a footprint, it follows them all through out their academic career.”  The program is free, all students will have to do is log on to the site and create an account.School leaders say, if you can sign on to Facebook you can sign on to my E.D.U.com
