Boosting Student Engagement with Unifyed Mobile
Central Carolina Technical College empowers its constituents with an immersive mobile application that provides them with convenient access to Ellucian® Banner, D2L®, Office365®, campus resources, news, and events.
Central Carolina Technical College took a long-term view of its student engagement strategy when it chose Unifyed Mobile, a customizable Higher Education Management Software. The solution offers a cloud-based self-service platform that enables CCTC administrators to personalize the student experience without writing a single line of code. The result is a custom-branded CCTC mobile app for iOS and Android users; with out-of-the-box integration to Ellucian® Banner, D2L®, Office365®; making information easily accessible on the go.
“We wanted to make sure we provide access to all of the information that we normally would provide on the portal, now in the palm of the hands of students. We have a variety of platforms running, and we needed an app that is applet based. We weren’t looking at tying ourselves down with what’s handed down to us; rather we wanted to improvise and create something that defines us and our needs best. Unifyed helped us achieve what was once only on paper and mind,” said Brian Davis, Director of Information and Learning Technologies at Central Carolina Technical College.
A robust solution for constituent engagement; Unifyed Mobile makes the SIS, LMS, Email & campus resources come together on one mobile platform and puts it straight into the hands of the students; equipped with a targeted messaging system, it facilitates campus-wide communication and improves student success outcomes.
Leveraging Unifyed Mobile & Portal, the institution was able to provide its students with convenient access to their class schedules, financial aid, academic transcripts, grades, courses, campus news & events; making information readily available on the go.
For staff and faculty members, it’s an excellent means to communicate and collaborate with their students; track engagement with inbuilt data-analytics, find students at risk to reduce attrition.
