CampusEAI: Mobile Apps

Posted on by John Lympany

Colleagues:

As some of you are aware, our community now connects on average 2.5 mobile devices per person to our campus network.  Use of mobile technology is more pervasive than ever before.  To accommodate this growth, we finalized an agreement with CampusEAI this morning to procure their suite of “myCampus” mobile apps.  These apps (listed below) will extend Banner “self-service” functionality to various mobile platforms and will provide a base of configurable “out-of-the-box” apps that will serve other needs on campus.

Our collaboration with CampusEAI will be a unique one as this is a consortium of educational institutions that work together to develop new apps and enhance existing apps which are then made available to all consortium members.  Consortium members also develop “portal channels” consistent with Berea’s architecture and this means that over time, we can ensure that all of our “virtual windows” to Berea’s learning community will have consistent feature sets and functionality.  Membership in this consortium is one way to leverage mutual interests to best serve our individual constituencies.

I just wanted to keep you in the loop as this relationship is built and we begin the process of testing and piloting various mobile features for College use.
