Digitalization promises to change the face of the education industry. With next-generation technology, your classrooms and lecture halls are no longer held back by physical barriers. Instead, the exchange of knowledge and information can flow freely from teachers to students across the globe. Give your organization the infrastructure it needs to thrive in this next chapter with an intranet platform from Unily.
With educational organizations working on different timetables, being able to effectively communicate across campus with faculty and student is essential. Remove the reliance on email with a platform that offers multiple communication channels, so you can reach and engage your internal customers with communications that inform, engage and inspire. Send alerts via push notifications, send email broadcasts, create news stories, and share updates on social channels all from one place.
Your teachers, professors, and lecturers are at the heart of your organization but are often scattered across different campuses and locations, particularly in the age of remote learning. Fuel engagement between your faculty and your students with a mobile platform that gives them access to the tools and resources they need to teach and learn effectively. Turn to your intranet for its user profile directory to award badges to subject matter experts within your organization and use consumer-grade search functionality to ensure knowledge remains at every user’s fingertips.
With many educational institutions operating as multiple buildings with their own agendas and goals, it can create a fragmented environment. Incorporate everything into one, centralized experience platform for all documents, data, and applications to sit within and be easily managed. Having the ability to post news, share periodicals, exchange information, and publish social updates in an interactive and shared space makes collaboration and engagement easy for everyone – whether you’re on campus or off.
Education doesn’t just end once you graduate. Strengthening your alumni network is a hugely valuable way to showcase your brand and to increase application rates. Having a digital community where alumni can still connect ensures they are still in the picture and are continually getting support and information to succeed. The digital workspace is also a great place for Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to build and strengthen your brand culture through promoting a diverse, inclusive workspace aligned with your missions and values.
Knowledge is the lifeblood of the education industry. Your employees have amassed plenty of specialist expertise, but are you taking full advantage of it? Leverage your intranet for powerful search functionality, seamless integrations, and quick document surfacing, all helping to enhance knowledge management across your educational institution.
