Here’s an easy-to-use app-building platform for higher education that doesn’t require any experience with coding. With Modo Campus, institutions can quickly build and maintain a versatile mobile campus app that is branded for the college using colors, fonts and layouts matching their existing brand. Modo Campus gives colleges the fastest possible way to build their campus app, which gives students a medium they’re very familiar with — their mobile phone.
Smartphones are the main connection for today’s college students to the world: A survey of more than 79,000 youth between the ages of 16 and 22 found that nearly 100 percent own a smartphone — and they spend more than four hours a day, on average, accessing content through their phone.
Using Modo Campus, students can request a housing assignment, add or drop a class, find an open parking spot, and reserve study space before midterms, among other tasks — all from the palm of their hand. Students and faculty can collaborate on projects, and colleges and universities can send out important (and highly personalized) information using push notification technology.
To help institutions connect with key constituencies more effectively amid COVID-19, Modo Labs released a number of specialized tools that were free of charge to Modo customers including a Crisis Response Starter Kit, an Admitted Student Engagement Starter Kit and a Virtual Commencement Starter Kit.
