Oral Roberts University Expands Global Education Network with OneCampus from rSmart
October 19, 2015 (Tulsa, Okla.) -- Oral Roberts University has selected and implemented OneCampus from rSmart to provide Global students, faculty, and staff seamless access to its global online learning programs and campus services. The lightweight, mobile-friendly technology provides students across the world to access ORU’s fully-accredited bachelor’s and master’s degrees anytime, anywhere, via any connection or device.
As a leading Christian university with more than 65 undergraduate majors, 14 master’s-level programs and two doctoral degrees, ORU has embraced globalized learning and innovation at home and abroad. The Tulsa campus is home to students from all 50 U.S. states and 86 international countries.
OneCampus will empower students in Oklahoma and across the globe to find and discover ORU’s campus services, technology, and degree programs through a simple, intuitive interface from their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
“It is estimated that 42% of all U.S. working adults have a college degree, while only 6.8% of all global working adults have a college degree. Our global society has been eagerly awaiting a flexible solution to address the global education attainment challenges. Through partnerships and technological advances like OneCampus, we can now address this need and grow our enrollment at ORU both locally and globally,” said Michael Mathews, CIO at ORU.
Unlike traditional portals, OneCampus takes a fresh, new approach to organizing web-based campus services with a Google-like search, ratings, and reviews to effectively analyze what services are being used and satisfaction levels.
From an IT Enterprise perspective, OneCampus sits on top of mobile apps and existing systems, as it seamlessly navigates users to disparate services and applications through a centralized point without affecting the underlying business units or processes. As a result, its implementation as well as ongoing updates are fast and easy, and the responsibility of maintenance can be shared by all campus stakeholders. Mathews states that “OneCampus is the Maestro to all other IT performing applications, in order to make IT appear as a enterprise that operates in complete unison.”
rSmart CEO Tony Potts added, “As the higher education landscape continues to change and evolve, we are honored to partner with forward-thinking universities like ORU. Together, we have an opportunity to have a direct, positive impact on everyday student life.”
