Middlesex University opts for Solutionpath and Ex Libris campusM to deliver classroom attendance and engagement solution
- 18 Sep 2019

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, and Solutionpath Ltd has announced that Middlesex University has chosen the Solutionpath StREAM learning analytics platform and Ex Libris campusM mobile app to provide learning analytics and attendance solutions that are the first of their kind in the market.

Middlesex University issued a tender in early 2019 for a solution that would enable the University to achieve its commitment to providing students with the timely personalised support they need to progress and succeed while also meeting UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) regulations. With the combined Solutionpath-Ex Libris offering-going live with a phased approach starting September 2019-Middlesex will benefit from a comprehensive system in which the Solutionpath advanced StREAM insights will draw attendance data from the student-facing app supplied by the Ex Libris campusM platform and participation and engagement data from other university systems.

The Ex Libris campusM student app is already in use at Middlesex, delivering key university services such as email, timetable information, and access to the virtual learning environment. The app is very popular with students, and now, with the addition of built-in attendance capabilities, students will be able to manage all aspects of campus life via one mobile app.

UKVI requirements to report attendance for certain cohorts of students often create a challenge for universities, which need to find a way to manage these regulations while respecting students' personal data concerns. Using the StREAM and campusM system, Middlesex University will be able to securely capture attendance data through the mobile app and also provide information and insights to lecturers and students in support of academic success.

Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology chooses Ex Libris campusM mobile platform
- 06 Aug 2019

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that New Zealand's Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology has chosen the Ex Libris campusMTM cloud-based mobile platform to provide a mobile-accessible portal that will increase student engagement in campus life. The campusM platform will replace a home-grown solution.

The institute's original mobile infrastructure-a browser-based page of links-lacked real-time information and data, creating a sub-optimal user experience, with students having to click several times to access the information that they need. In addition, the page could not deliver notifications and was not mobile responsive.

Toi Ohomai determined that a key IT strategic goal was to focus on developing the staff and student experience, which resulted in the establishment of a modern mobile infrastructure that would enable students to engage, collaborate, and receive updated information anywhere, at any time.

After evaluating their existing Toi Ohomai Hub platform, the team concluded that the campusM platform would assist the institution in supporting student life via both a native app and a web portal. The campusM platform is designed to provide information of many types, such as grades, computer availability, live bus schedules, cafeteria updates, and campus events. In addition, the institute can extend the campusM capabilities through an app extension kit (AEK). By providing such services, Toi Ohomai will enhance the student experience, gain crucial analytical insight into how students are accessing content, ensure that students receive the latest information, and, more importantly, identify which students might need learner support.

Karger Publishers and Derma.one GmbH sign joint venture to develop dermatology app
- 08 May 2019

Medical and scientific publishing company Karger Publishers and Derma.one GmbH have recently signed a joint venture contract. The purpose of the cooperation is the long-term, global commercialisation and further development of the 'dermakonsil' app.

Karger will contribute its competences in content management and publishing while Derma.one will take responsibility for the technical and medical know-how. In a first phase, the commercialisation of the app will focus on the German-speaking area. After the launch of the English version of the app, the reach will be expanded to countries like the USA, the UK and Australia.

'dermakonsil' is a digital handbook for dermatologists when diagnosing skin diseases. Since 2014 the app has been developed by a team around Professor Dr. Alexander Navarini and Vahid Djamei and assists dermatologists in differential diagnosis, evaluation of disease state, and therapy. 'dermakonsil' is a learning tool that quickly adjusts to the personal needs of the user. Dermatologists can use this independent academic resource as an app on a mobile phone as well as via a desktop application.

- 12 Apr 2019

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Pensacola Christian College (PCC) in Florida has fully deployed the Ex Libris campusM® cloud-based mobile platform to support student engagement and success. The campusM platform was chosen for its unique ability to bring together campus services under one umbrella and deliver the school's campus app, myPCC, to the community via smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

For today's digital-native PCC students, campus expectations are informed by daily experiences in the digital economy, where everything is on demand, convenient, personalised, and just a click away. The primary goal of myPCC is to provide dynamic, on-demand access to student resources; convey information on a variety of academic, athletic, fine arts, social, and service activities; and enable students to select and customise the desired options in their campus app. Using out-of-the-box campusM functionality, the MyPCC app employs multiple personalised profiles to offer each type of user a unique experience.

In the future, PCC hopes to extend app usage to prospective students with the goal of strengthening their engagement with the school and raising their awareness of events and opportunities when they visit the campus.
