Delivering the modern mobile campus that keeps students connected.
Develop an engaging, integrated mobile app for students that meets the pace and trend of current college mobile app functionality
- Humber students were quick to adopt the college’s new app
- Students access email, schedules, grades, and more through the app
- Humber offers a more integrated student experience
Humber College serves staff and students with a modern, mobile app.
“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 College’s director of enterprise applications.
When looking for mobile platform provider, Carson looked for a solution that would integrate with Humber’s existing ERP software and other applications, while ensuring scalability and seamless single sign-on access for students along with a framework that could support both native and web applications.
The college had little need for customisation, 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.
Humber chose Ellucian Mobile as its complete mobile solution for three key reasons: simplicity, agility, and a quick time to market.
Using the mobile platform, the college created and deployed 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.
From the beginning, Humber’s vision for their app was one of both visual and technical simplicity, which was delivered by an out-of-the box, user-friendly app requiring only two customisations: a Humber background image and Humber branding.
“We want to keep things simple and minimise customisations to be agile,” Carson says. “Less is more.”
The layout is clean; it’s well organised and designed; it’s intuitive.Gillian Carson, Director of Enterprise Applications
