So many large data systems that Universities use do not actually engage the people the system is for

Inigral Inc., the emerging leader of application development on the Social Web for higher education, has announced at EDUCAUSE 2008 that its new product "Schools on Facebook" is the first Academic Lifecycle Engagement Platform, a solution for colleges and Universities that includes admissions marketing, enrollment management, student retention and alumni engagement functionality.

"So many large data systems that Universities use do not actually engage the people the system is for," said Michael Staton, CEO, for Inigral. "With our Academic Lifecycle Engagement Platform, 'Schools on Facebook,' Colleges and Universities now can use Facebook to drive enrollment, retention and alumni engagement by facilitating community interaction around existing data."

Schools are spending four billion dollars a year marketing to students, and most admissions teams are complaining that current efforts are out-of-touch and don't reach so called "digital natives." "Prospective students aren't reading marketing emails any more and the brochures go straight to the recycle bin. Meanwhile, they're on Facebook and institutions want a presence there," Staton said.

Inigral is a pioneer of social web applications for education. Now generating wide interest is their white-label Facebook application, "Schools on Facebook". The Company has attained an impressive list of "firsts" with the social network, including introducing the first Course Management System ("Courses on Facebook") on the Facebook platform. The Company was also one of the first to release License and Support of social web applications on social platforms.
