Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today the release of JICS Go, a mobile solution designed to build student connectivity and engagement. JICS Go delivers Jenzabars Internet Campus Solution (JICS) and the Jenzabar e-Racer® learning management system to students through preferred mobile devices, conveniently connecting them to the campus community.
Providing constituents with campus information and services on demand through the latest mobile technology is now a requirement for higher education institutions. With direct access to the Internet portal and the e-Racer learning management system, JICS Go offers a rich online experience for users to view campus news and events, class communications, and general coursework from mobile devices anywhere, at any time. JICS Go was developed with an online interface designed specifically for mobile phones such as the Apple® iPhone® mobile device, Google Android mobile device, Blackberry® smartphone, and popular tablets including the iPad® mobile device.
Higher education institutions are looking beyond typical online capabilities and Internet services to communicate and connect with students. They are seeking to provide campus technology, learning functionality, and other digital content to users through mobile devices, said Robert A. Maginn, Jr., Jenzabar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. JICS Go will not only help institutions connect with their constituents, much like typical websites or other online outlets, the interface of the mobile solution will improve user engagement to help drive student success and retention.
Jenzabars Internet Campus Solution is an Internet portal that connects candidates, students, alumni, faculty, and staff to an institutions database at any time from any Internet browser, giving constituents 24x7 access to role-specific content, from administrative records and reports to online exams and chat rooms.
