Desire2Learn Campus Life will enable institutions and other campus groups to facilitate communication, collaboration, and information sharing on-the-go
Desire2Learn Incorporated (Desire2Learn), a leading provider of mission-critical enterprise eLearning solutions, today announced the release of Desire2Learn Campus Life. This turn-key mobile solution connects learners with their academic community by extending the campus presence into their everyday lives. Through any iPhone, iPod Touch, Android or BlackBerry device, Desire2Learn Campus Life connects students and faculty to campus videos and media, news, events, campus directories, services, and their learning management systems (LMSs).
The development of Desire2Learn Campus Life was enabled through the leadership and vision of the expanded Desire2Learn mobile team. This expansion has further enhanced the research and development capabilities of the team, resulting in additional leading-edge mobile offerings in the marketplace.
“Desire2Learn Campus Life incorporates internet standards extensively to ensure openness and compatibility across mobile devices,” comments Kenneth Chapman, Senior Director of Product Strategy, Desire2Learn. “It offers institutional customization and will include the ability to incorporate other campus developed modules.”
Applications match the institution’s brand and identity and provide a single point of entry to essential services on campus. By engaging students with varied and changing multimedia content, institutions keep their users coming back.
This mobile platform is available to both existing clients and those new to Desire2Learn products. It can easily be linked to existing sources of information, enabling them to immediately benefit from technology investments that the campus has already made. Desire2Learn Campus Life can be streamlined with Desire2Learn Learning Environment, connected to other campus technological resources, or deployed in a standalone format as a fully customizable application for a conference or organizational event.
“Our mobile solutions are focused on user engagement” says David Kruis, Director, Mobile Strategy, Desire2Learn. “We accomplish that by offering users immediate access to relevant, current, and rich content provided by their institution.”
