Boston, MA –– Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, strategies and services for higher education, is introducing a new social solution that contains features for stronger connectivity with constituents on Facebook. Jenzabar Social was announced during EDUCAUSE 2012 in Denver.

Jenzabar’s latest social offering will allow institutions to use Facebook in a more active and secure way. Jenzabar Social transforms static Facebook pages into a vibrant, active community by combining institutions’ many disparate pages into one view, adding better privacy settings, and offering more secure online transactions such as applications and donations. The software integrates directly with Jenzabar ERP and learning management systems, enabling key information to automatically upload and offering more ways for classmates and students to collaborate.

Sarah Lawrence College is a coeducational liberal arts college, located in Bronxville, New York, offering undergraduate and graduate degrees. The college is an early adopter of Jenzabar Social. With customizable features, Sarah Lawrence will be able to match the Jenzabar Social solution to the college’s Internet Portal for brand consistency. Sarah Lawrence also plans to sync and customize Facebook pages as well as gain more control and track activity within the social site.

Jenzabar Social is scheduled to be released in 2013. With Jenzabar Social, institutions can securely track and monitor activity on the Facebook page. Existing students connect directly to courses in Jenzabar’s LMS and share information with other classmates right on Facebook. Private communities can also be created within Jenzabar Social, allowing users to collaborate without having a Facebook account or needing to become Facebook friends with others. Course communities are integrated directly into the learning management system where users securely access Gradebook and Coursework.
