Y Porth

Y Porth

Y Porth is the Coleg Cymraeg’s collaborative e-learning platform. It was established in 2009 to encourage Universities to share Welsh medium teaching resources with each other. As a result, it has developed into a crucial hub for the studying and teaching of University courses through the medium of Welsh.

The Portal is based on Blackboard, and is open to staff and students at all Welsh universities.

It includes:

  • electronic resources and materials
  • web gallery
  • modules and support materials
  • a searchable portal of terms for higher education

Although the gateway contains a number of open resources, it is necessary to register as a user in order to access some resources (eg specific modules). 
The process of registering as a user on the Gateway is easy. Follow the instructions on the home page of the Porth website.
