ANAHEIM, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Ellucian® continues advancing digital campus power with the new 2.6 release of Ellucian Mobile, helping colleges and universities take advantage of the latest in mobile technology.
“The fast-moving mobile environment demands a nimble and innovative development team”
New features, including full support for the new Apple iOS7 operating system, expanded iPad and Android tablet support, improved database support for SQL Server and Oracle, and customer requested items, provide timely enhancements that increase overall performance and improve the end-user experience.
“The fast-moving mobile environment demands a nimble and innovative development team,” said Mark Jones, chief product officer, Ellucian. “This is the fourth major release of the product in seven months. We had new presentation and data layers in place to support iOS7 when it hit the market, and we continually incorporate market developments to deliver the best mobile experience in global higher education. In addition, addressing nearly half of the client requests in a single release demonstrates how much emphasis we place on listening to and working with our customers.”
Improvements to the user interface include landscape orientation for tablets and iOS screens, and the flexibility to open functionality in browser windows and to open web module links in an external browser, making it quicker and easier to access resources. The new version also adds full right-to-left Arabic in addition to supporting US English, UK English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese languages.
Unlike outmoded offerings that bundle disconnected apps through mobile middleware, Ellucian Mobile is a single app that delivers volumes of varied content through a highly customizable framework. It is a fast, affordable, and scalable approach for institutions wanting to deliver the best mobile experience. More than 600 colleges and universities located throughout Asia, the Middle East, Europe, North America, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, and Australia have licensed Ellucian Mobile since it was launched in April 2013.
Higher education technology professionals can experience Ellucian Mobile at Ellucian’s booth #501 at the EDUCAUSE annual conference in Anaheim, California this week. Or visit http://www.ellucian.com/mobile-campus.
