Delaware Valley College Adopts CampusCruiser for Portal Access
- By Dian Schaffhauser
Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, PA has adopted college portal CampusCruiser from Timecruiser Computing. The portal will provide a single entry point to Blackboard, the college's learning management system, and will connect users to integrated calendars, e-mail, chat, blogs, and message boards. It will also provide a mechanism for users to send and receive campus announcements; collaborate online within communities, clubs, and organizations; share content and collaborate on projects; conduct polls and surveys; and send and receive instant notifications via text, e-mail, and phone.
"We examined several portal offerings and concluded that CampusCruiser would be the best fit for our students, faculty, and staff along with integrating well with existing systems," said William Brichta, CIO and vice president for technology. "The technical benefits that the software provides will suit our stakeholders' needs and serve us well into the future."
Other institutions using CampusCruiser include Widener University in Chester, PA and Mid-South Community College in West Memphis, AR.
