UNB receives Best myCampus 2012 award for its portal
The University of New Brunswick, located in Fredericton and Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, has received a Best myCampus Award from the CampusEAI Consortium in honor of their incredible work with the myCampus portal platform.
UNB accepted the award during CampusEAI Executive Director Anjli Jain’s keynote address at the Consortium’s Annual Conference.
UNB’s myUNB portal is part of a comprehensive web strategy that results in a consistent web experience throughout its entire online presence – from its public site and internal websites to the portal.
The UNB ITS and Communications & Marketing teams worked with CampusEAI to deliver this consistent experience to the UNB community through the portal, by creating a theme that went beyond aesthetics and featured with custom applications, including:
- A Today’s Events Widget that integrates with the university events calendar.
- UNB Alerts and Cancellations Widget
- UNB Headline News Widget
- A unique notifications system, featuring their own custom API
- Social media widgets that pull in UNB’s Facebook fan page and Twitter account.
“The myUNB portal plays a vital role in our web strategy by helping provide students, faculty and staff with a convenient, one-stop shop to information and services they rely on,” says Terry Nikkel, UNB’s associate vice-president, Information Technology Services.
“Ultimately the portal helps UNB fulfill some of the goals of its strategic plan, including improving the student experience and making the university a better place to live, work and learn,” he adds.
“We are pleased to award the achievements of the portal team at the University of New Brunswick,” said Anjli Jain, Executive Director of the CampusEAI Consortium.
“UNB’s commitment to a unique, consistent theme for their portal is an incredible example for all members of our Consortium.”
