With technology constantly improving, Universities are trying to find ways to keep up with the change. The University of Hawaii is in the process of replacing its legacy portal with a new system called OneCampus. This system from rSmart, is a system that provides access to campus services from any device. At the University of Hawaii, this service connects its 55,000+ students and more than 8,000 faculty members with hundreds of different online services on all 10 campuses across all the islands.
Hae Okimoto, director of academic technologies, stated that the University needed an alternative solution that would meet the changing needs of the students and Universities. He also states that OneCampus is a great way to provide the users with a simple and mobile-friendly way to navigate the services.
OneCampus has features like a Google-like search and ratings and reviews that allow the administrators to see which features are being used and the satisfaction rate. The University can also share announcements such as an upcoming service outage and assign tasks to the campuses.
As the time to switch to OneCampus approaches, beta testers are continuously adding tasks to the system in advance for the full release.
