Delivering a modern mobile campus that works for students and staff

Humber College provides seamless student access and maintains flexibility with Ellucian Mobile

Humber College offers responsive, career-ready programs that are designed to prepare their students for the needs of the national and global economies. Such a modern focus—and the students who value it—requires a modern campus. And in today’s world, that means mobile.

Humber chose Ellucian Mobile as its complete mobile solution for three key reasons: simplicity, agility, and a quick time to market. The college had little need for customization, and it wanted a solution that would integrate easily with their existing technologies and strategies while keeping pace with upgrades. And, of course, Humber wanted to reach its students where they live: on their phones and tablets.

“We know that students are using mobile devices, and that we need to get into that world in a bigger way,” says Gillian Carson, Humber’s director of enterprise applications.

Ellucian Mobile was “the logical choice” for Humber, Carson says, and its Application edition was optimal “for its agility and to get to market quickly.” The solution’s native, real-time integration with Humber’s Banner® by Ellucian ERP ensures scalability and seamless single sign-on access, and the framework supports both native and web applications. The college can dynamically add content without the time and hassle of multiple app store resubmissions, while the intuitive configuration interface requires no programming.

A smooth deployment and a successful launch

Using Ellucian Mobile, the college created a branded app called MyHumber, which offers students mobile access to their campus email, class schedules, grades, notifications, and account information. It also offers visitor information, available without sign-in. Available for free from the Apple and Android app stores, the MyHumber mobile app provides quick links to Humber’s website and social media sites.
