Modern Campus Announces New Product Extensions to Help Higher Education Institutions Drive Student Enrollment
Modern Campus announces the Acalog-Omni CMS Connector, Register Nudges, and Presence Nudges to simplify how institutions can engage students at key stages of the student experience.
TORONTO – April 11, 2023
Modern Campus, the higher education industry’s leading modern learner engagement platform, today announced the available integration between its Acalog and Omni CMS products along with two new product add-ons – Register Nudges and Presence Nudges. These product extensions will make it even easier for higher education institutions to communicate with and directly engage students around course availability, registration next steps, and upcoming student activities.
Student engagement is a top priority for leaders across the postsecondary space as they wrestle with how to manage student disengagement and continuously declining enrollments. According to Marriel Hardy, Chief Communications Officer at Coahoma Community College, improving student engagement increases their likelihood to complete their credentials.
“Many studies have shown us that student learning and persistence in college are strongly associated with engagement,” Hardy said in an interview with The EvoLLLution. “These factors also create bonds and connections to the institution post-graduation.”
