Nelly Furtado – All Good Things (Come To An End) (US Version)
Dear old OCC,
You have been such familiar habit I may find it hard to simply forget you because “My IB” is the new kid on the block
Yes, I know you had your foibles and of course over time I expect I’ll forget you and your funny quirks, the weird navigation etc.
But dammit you were always there for me when I needed to vent or to find an answer, (even if I often had to struggle to find that answer.)
Let’s face it, you were sometimes a little…strange.
But it was good while it lasted.
As you may – or may not – know, the OCC is being phased out…
The IB says that the OCC will be decommissioned “when its main functions have been fully developed and made available to schools”.
“My IB is the International Baccalaureate’s new central location for IB resources and applications.
Teachers will continue using the OCC in parallel with the programme resource centre beta site through 2017.
This includes the launch of the programme resource centre, as well as the successors for the community forums and teacher resource exchange.”
Programme Communities will replace the forums on the OCC (where you can “join the discussions, network, and share your expertise and tips!”).
RESOURCES & THE PROGRAMME RESOURCE CENTRE
All the teacher support materials and resources will be found at the Programme Resource Centre
The programme resource centre replaces the online curriculum centre (OCC) as the place to go for essential IB curriculum resources. To access the programme resource centre, log in through My IB with your usual credentials and you will find a new section for the programme resource centre.
IB use the Salesforce platform for many of their IB applications. Salesforce are upgrading their security, so users of older web browsers will no longer be able to access applications like My IB. Please use one of the following web browsers:
- Firefox version 27 or higher
- Microsoft Edge
- Microsoft Internet Explorer
- Google Chrome 38 or higher
- Safari Version 7 or higher
- Mobile Safari Version 5 or higher
- Android 6 or higher.
Go to the My IB homepage to register as a new user if you do not yet have a My IB username and password. You will receive an email to confirm your registration. If you already have a username and password for My School or IBEN Central, you can use them to log in to My IB and do not need to register again. Please avoid re-registering and creating duplicate records.
Log into My IB. Go to “IB roles” to register for the role(s) you fulfil at your school. One person can register for more than one role if needed.
After registering, your IB coordinator will receive an email to confirm your details. Once confirmed, you can login to My IB and access the programme resource centre, programme communities and other applications. To find the link to My IB in the future go to My IB: the link is at the top of the ibo.org homepage.
If all else fails or if you have any queries the IB Answers team will help.
