With the help of rSmart, Hardin-Simmons implements the next generation portal to introduce a simple, accessible tool that helps students find success on campus
Hardin-Simmons University has selected OneCampus from rSmart to modernize the way students, faculty, and staff access web-based campus services from any device. OneCampus is a lightweight, cloud-based platform that will serve the Hardin-Simmons education community and support their goal to enhance, enrich, and facilitate the learning experience.
Hardin-Simmons, a private university in Abilene, TX was founded in 1891 as a private, coeducational, liberal arts university “dedicated to providing excellence in education enlightened by Christian faith and values.” To meet the needs of their growing student population, and offer modern technologies for their community, the University recently chose OneCampus to help students find success in navigating campus services such as student services, tutoring, housing info and much more.
“As IT leaders, it is vitally important that we connect people to content and services that meet their needs and enhance the educational experience. Because of this, Hardin-Simmons University is excited to begin delivering the OneCampus service discovery portal for students, faculty and staff,” said Travis Seekins, Associate V.P. for Technology of Hardin-Simmons University. “With its simple, intuitive interface and quick search capabilities, we know that OneCampus will successfully create that connection, allowing easy access to the most-used programs and services available to our constituencies. Additionally, having the capability to search for and access those resources at any time and from any device will save our people significant time while reducing frustration.”
OneCampus provides colleges and universities a fresh, new approach to organizing their web-based services. Unlike traditional portals, the platform features a Google-like search, ratings & reviews to effectively analyze what services are being used and satisfaction levels, and dynamic categories such as “most popular” to promote service discovery. Administrators can also convey important, time-sensitive information to a large audience through global announcements and alerts. A user-friendly interface and mobile efficiencies give students the functionality they expect in a campus technology.
“We are delighted to welcome Hardin-Simmons University to the community of OneCampus users,” said Tony Potts, CEO at rSmart. “rSmart is honored to work with the University to support their efforts in providing the highest-quality education and technology services to their students and staff. OneCampus is a unique solution, built in the cloud to offer a simple, intuitive, and mobile-friendly way to navigate campus services and web applications. Hardin-Simmons and rSmart are committed to ensuring the success of students on campus and we know that OneCampus will delight users in easily finding the resources they need every day.”
