Once again, Infinite Campus reinforces its position as the industry’s technology leader.
Blaine, MN (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Infinite Campus announces the Campus Mobile Portal, the first in a series of fully-integrated, easy-to-use mobile learning tools. The Campus Mobile Portal has been designed from the ground up to intelligently interact with the information stored in the district’s Infinite Campus database.
Because it’s informed by Campus Census, parents/guardians with more than one student in their family can easily switch from one to another’s information with the flick of a fingertip. It’s also integrated with the advanced, object-oriented Campus Security system, so each student in the family can only view his/her own information.
The new Campus Mobile Portal is available for free from the App StoreSM. Once the app has been installed on an Apple® iOS device (iPod Touch®, iPhone®, iPad®), parents and students can access grades, attendance and schedule information virtually anywhere.
Daily Planner allows students to know exactly when and where they need to be and to see the assignments coming up in each of their classes.
Assignments provides detailed information about what students are, were, or will be expected to do in each class.
Attendance provides both summary and detail information about absences and tardies.
Grades provides immediate access to the important metrics of success and allows parents and students to “drill down” to the assignments that make up a particular grade.
Notifications, once enabled by the district, allow parent and student subscribers to receive notifications regarding changes to assignments, grades and attendance changes according to their individual notification preferences.
“The Campus Mobile Portal is a powerful tool that gives parents and students access to key educational information from anywhere at any time,” said Charlie Kratsch, CEO and founder of Infinite Campus. “The Campus Mobile Portal also provides ‘push notification’ that automatically alerts users of grade, assignment and attendance changes. Once again, Infinite Campus reinforces its position as the industry’s technology leader.”
The Campus Mobile Portal is yet another example of how Infinite Campus adds ever-growing value to our customers who, month after month, receive new features without additional cost as part of their subscription. In this case, the Infinite Campus District Edition now includes the data structures and business logic necessary to provide student-related data to students and parents via mobile devices…important core functionality that will be leveraged by future enhancements.
