Our partnership with Jenzabar will enable institutions to easily engage and collaborate with students through the entire life cycle of their relationship with the institution.
Boston, MA (Vocus) May 12, 2010
Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, and Wimba, a leading collaboration solution provider, today announced a partnership that will provide campus-wide collaboration and enhance the ability of higher education institutions to engage constituents throughout their lifecycle – from candidates, to students, to alumni.
With this new partnership, Jenzabar’s Internet Campus Solution portal and e-RacerTM learning management system will be tightly integrated with Wimba’s Collaboration Suite, which includes Wimba Classroom, Wimba Pronto, and Wimba Voice. The Wimba Collaboration Suite offers students, teachers, staff, and administrators a comprehensive, live collaboration environment for dynamic instruction, efficient meetings, and effective delivery of academic and administrative help. Jenzabar’s Internet Campus Solution is an Internet portal that connects candidates, students, alumni, faculty, and staff to an institution’s database at any time from any Internet browser.
“Collaboration plays a critical role in supporting the strategic initiatives of our customers – not only enhancing teaching and learning but helping them meet administrative objectives like recruiting prospective students, virtually delivering student services, and engaging alumni,” said Donovan Lytle, Vice President of Business Development at Wimba. “Our partnership with Jenzabar will enable institutions to easily engage and collaborate with students through the entire life cycle of their relationship with the institution.”
By providing direct access to Wimba’s collaborative solutions via Jenzabar’s Internet portal, colleges and universities will not only strengthen their affiliation with constituents on and off campus but also realize significant cost and time saving efficiencies.
“Technology plays a major role in effectively engaging and interacting with constituents,” said Robert A. Maginn, Jr., Jenzabar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Offering cutting-edge technology that encourages collaboration is crucial for a productive learning environment. We are certain our integration with Wimba will allow colleges and universities to meet the expectations of Web-savvy constituents, establish campus-wide collaboration, and help provide an ideal educational experience for students.”
Wimba® is a leading provider of collaborative solutions used by thousands of educators around the world to engage students, support business needs, and save time and money. The Wimba Collaboration Suite, recently awarded the 2009 “Best Education Solution” CODiE award by SIIA, offers students, teachers, and administrators an engaging and comprehensive collaboration environment for instruction, meetings, and help. By combining academic features, ease of use, and interactive technologies the Wimba solution goes well beyond web conferencing and sets a new standard for collaboration. http://www.wimba.com
