When it comes to notifying your students, faculty, and staff about important campus issues and events, you can’t rely on just texting or email.

In this University Business web seminar, which was originally broadcast on May 10, 2012, Oklahoma Christian University and Oklahoma Baptist University show how Rave Campus Messenger from AT&T helped improve and streamline their notification systems.

This web seminar, originally presented on April 26, 2012, looked at the benefits realized by the University of Illinois after implementation of the Nelnet cashiering solution.

A flawed process prevented admissions representatives, coaches, department chairs and others from knowing what each had told prospective students. The confusion hindered administrators at the private Catholic school that prides itself on getting to know every single one of its 1,800 students.

 

Implementation of a laptop program was the beginning of the simplification and standardization of IT at Grove City College (PA), a common enough move these days as anywhere, anytime computing becomes the campus norm. What makes this program strikingly different from other colleges’ is that it was launched - in partnership with HP - more than a decade ago when laptops were not the sleek, ubiquitous tools they are today.
