Student engagement is pivotal to fostering a sense of belonging within educational institutions. A modern student-centric portal that provides a quick and easy search for campus resources and can also solicit student feedback is required to assess whether the resources offered actually meet their needs.
In this four-minute video, "Student Reviews," Ryan Vallow, Lead Business Analyst at Indiana University (IU), shares how OneCampus facilitates reviews and feedback about campus resources with just a click or two.
Harnessing Student Engagement
Before implementing OneCampus, IU faced the challenge of catering to the diverse needs of its campus community. With six regional campuses and over 100,000 students, the university's portal became a complex network of links, making it difficult for students to find the resources they sought.
With OneCampus, IU found a unified solution for hosting resources, applications, information, and service access to enrich students' overall campus experience. OneCampus, a cloud-based and search-first portal, seamlessly connects the university's community, ensuring that all essential resources are easily accessible and giving campus leaders insights to make more informed decisions about how resources are offered.
Safeguarding Student Information
With remote learning here to stay, institutions face even greater challenges in keeping student information safe than in the past. Institutions must balance the "open arms" style of a welcoming environment important to future recruitment with the ongoing need to safeguard against cybersecurity threats.
How does a portal provide a secure but unified experience that blends public content with content solely for students, staff, and faculty?
OneCampus integrates an institution's security requirements with the convenience of self-service for constituents, eliminating the need for additional IT support. Using OneCampus, students can access everything from course registration to grades with fewer clicks than with their favorite web browser and feel confident that their personal information is protected.
Why risk a poor student experience? Leveraging your student portal to assist with content discovery is an efficient and practical way to eliminate frustration for both new students and those well on their way to completing their education.
