  • With the Kent Live custom domain set up by the university, this includes certain links to allow the student to access key, important areas of the internal network. It seems as though this could become a central point of call for students. Students will more often than not open two websites when they first log on to a computer - their email account (this page, in some ways) and their Facebook account.

  • In true Windows Live fashion, when you access your email inbox - www.outlook.com - you will be presented with this Windows Live ID login screen, as you would normally expect. Though, this login screen does look slightly different in that this screen is exclusively for university students and staff. If your email address doesn't end in a *.edu or an .ac.* domain name, then you simply cannot come in! (...provided your university has signed up for it, of course!)

  • The first screen you will see, is the Outlook Live 'out-of-box' experience, which will only appear once and allows you to set your language, your viewing experience (for those who are visually impaired) and your time zone. Even though I changed mine to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time; London), it still seems to think I'm in Romania. A bit odd, but it still gives me the correct time so I can't complain.
