UCN is Live With New Office 365 Study Portal
The University College of Northern Denmark needed a platform that was able to work as a directory in the digital study environment. With Wizdom, The University College has created a study portal that provides access to all information and digital solutions the students use within the context of their studies.
The platform includes lateral information that´s not directly study related, such as practical information about the campus, job offers, and events.
Simplicity and a responsive design were important for UCN.
It was important for us to get a simple platform and a solution with only four functions: Find your education, links for study relevant systems, news, and phonebook.
The intention is that you, as a student, access all information through your education site. Each education site features a menu with target grouped menu items. Some menu items are visible for all students. Others are only shown to students on a specific education or campus. This reduces complexity for students.
Diverse User Group
UCN’s user group consists of students from all of the 35 educations offered by UCN; everything from midwifery to plumbing. The university college wanted a solution that was able to manage this diverse user group of 9,200 students.
The challenge for UCN was, therefore, to create a coherent user experience and at the same time fufill individual needs. The platform had to create a connection across the spectrum of educations and also link to relevant information. A simple interface along with Wizdom’s features enabling personalized intranet content, supports this.
