Using new technology to solve old problems
We see many of our customers looking for innovative and cost effective means to address the challenge of monitoring Classroom Attendance. Specifically Universities and Colleges need to be able to report on student attendance however traditional systems can be prohibitively expensive or very difficult to set up.
With this in mind we have developed an attendance monitoring solution utilizing iBeacon technology. Over the next month or so we will be deploying our first iBeacon Attendance Monitoring Project and are anticipating some very powerful results.
We are creating resources to explain what we are doing and how to get involved including a video that you can see at http://adobe.ly/1tovdPj. Jackie has also written a blog on the subject, which is available here – http://linkd.in/1ByghMj

campusM Launch iBeacon Attendance Monitoring
campusM is pleased to announce the launch of it’s new end-to-end attendance monitoring solution utilizing iBeacons.
It is quick and simple to set up in any type of space, and offers significant cost savings over a swipe card system and time savings over paper based registers. An added benefit is that there does not need to be an internet connection for it to work.
It couldn’t be easier for students – all they do is walk into the room and the iBeacon recognizes that they should be there, records their attendance and sends them a push notification confirming their registration. There is no intervention needed from Academic Staff, and there are also mechanisms for recording attendance of the small percentage of students not in possession of a smartphone.
campusM Attendance Monitoring is available either as a stand alone solution, or as part of a campusM Enterprise deployment.

Webinar showcases new features in our App Manager
Yesterday we held a webinar to show our customers the new version of App Manager. campusM has a comprehensive but simple to use content management tool which allows institutions to take full control of the branding and content of their app.
The new app manager is packed with great features including live preview of how the app will look, with the added ability to specify which device or platform you want to preview it on. Our asset manager has been enhanced to allow drag and drop file management and a simpler user interface makes the App Manager easier to use than ever.

Bournemouth Uni spreads Christmas cheer with campusM
We love hearing about novel uses for our apps and we were thrilled last week to hear of a very festive idea that Bournemouth University has had. It recently launched its ‘Tweet the tree’ initiative, which allows staff and students using twitter and specific hashtags, to say what they like most about the University.
Each hashtag has a colour associated with it and depending on which is currently most popular, the lights on the main Bournemouth University Christmas tree change colour to show the leader!
The team at Bournemouth have added a shortcut to this on the homepage of their app and it is currently the 3rd most popular menu item. There has been lots of positive feedback about it and we think it’s a great idea.
Mike Hawes is our newest Technical Account Manager
Mike Hawes is the latest addition to our team of Technical Account Managers (TAMs). He joined campusM three years ago, and quickly progressed into a more client-facing role. His new position as TAM will give him even more contact with our customers, and he’s also enjoying the overview of app developments it gives him.
So what does being a TAM involve exactly? It’s about being the first point of contact for customers, and helping to meet their goals. With TAMs, our clients can tap into a great source of technical expertise and in-depth knowledge of the campusM Platform. TAMs share best practice, suggest features, and explore innovations. Mike says helping clients to manage apps that tens of thousands of people use is pretty incredible.
University of Canberra goes live with campusM
The University of Canberra has gone live with campusM, in plenty of time for the next academic year in February. Staff at Canberra have every reason to be excited, with a raft of great features and enthusiastic feedback from students who took part in a recent workshop to test drive the app. The app gives students mobile access to essential resources like personalized timetables, e-books and e-journal articles. One particularly strong innovation is the Parking Availability service. Staff have overlain Google Maps with images of campus carparks, and students can see how many spaces are available at different times of day. Canberra have been a joy to work with and we wish them every success.
Award win for QCC Connect!
Jas and Scott are in New York at the CUNY Conference this week. They were thrilled last night when a campusM App – QCC Connect received a prestigious award. The team at QCC picked up the prize for Outstanding Project Serving Students, Faculty and/or Staff which provides the greatest benefit to students, faculty and/or staff either on campus of CUNY wide, beating 18 other colleges in the process.
We at campusM would like to pass on our congratulations to everyone involved in the project and we look forward to continuing to working with QCC to further enhance the app. You can read our Case Study for more information about the app.
New Case Study Published
Last week we published our latest Case Study. This case study looks at how campusM worked with London School of Economics to enhance content within their app and provide a consistent brand experience. We look forward to continuing to work with the team at LSE to further develop their app. Read the Case Study here – http://bit.ly/1rkq3TL
Classroom Polling with campusM
We are continually looking at enhancing the utility of the campusM Platform, and have been working hard on our latest development: Classroom Polling. This functionality will enable students to respond to questions via their mobile device or laptop. Institutions piloting this feature tell us that they are confident that this will increase student engagement and therefore improve learning outcomes.
The campusM team recently participated in a simulated classroom test of the feature and we were all impressed with the intuitive user interface and simplicity of use. We are looking forward to seeing the results of the pilots and see this as the first step in a series of enhancement designed to further extend the benefits our clients see from deploying campusM.
We will keep you up to date with developments so make sure you follow us on twitter for the latest information @_campusM_
