What is Ventus?

Ventus is a new one-stop solution linking the Paul Menton Centre (PMC), students with disabilities, faculty and course instructors, and the McIntyre Exam Centre (MEC) under a single academic accommodation management system.

Why we are moving to Ventus?

  • An identified need for a more efficient system to create a better overall user experience for all stakeholders in the accommodations process.
  • Feedback from faculty regarding having a tool that gives them access to all Letters of Accommodation in one place.
  • Provide students with more control over which accommodations they need on a per-course and per-test basis.

Functions/Benefits of Ventus for Faculty

Through the Ventus Faculty Portal, you will be able to:

  • View individual Letters of Accommodation (LoAs) of all PMC students in your course in one single place.
  • Book your test or exam with the McIntyre Exam Centre (MEC) through a submission of a Notice of Examination (NOE).
  • Upload a digital copy of your test or exam similar to past practice.
  • View the accommodation arrangements of your PMC students for a test or an exam, including their start/end times and locations.
