London, U.K — February 9, 2022
The university is leveraging campusM integrations with Canvas and Microsoft Outlook to manage and enhance digital learning
London, U.K. Feb 9 2022. Ex Libris, part of Clarivate plc (NYSE:CLVT), is pleased to announce that The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) has gone live with the Ex Libris campusM™ student engagement platform and web portal.
The campusM solution is helping the university drive student success through deep integrations with library services and with core university tools such as the Canvas learning management system and Microsoft Outlook. These integrations enable students to access vital learning information all in one place and with just a few taps on their mobile device. In addition, the campusM app enhances the digital student experience through customizable home screen tiles and access to personalized information related to classes, university events, library resources, timetables, and more.
With the implementation of the mobile app and web portal, the university is encouraging departments to create and distribute digital content. Instead of the diverse systems in use up to now, all departments have access to the campusM drag-and-drop interface, thus helping USM cut costs while also increasing the output of useful digital content.
“Students are expected to navigate the university environment; keep track of schedules, assignments, events, and rules; and retain a lot of new information,” commented USM Chief Information Officer David Sliman. “With campusM, we found a solution that will grow with our students and will enable us to place Southern Miss in the palm of their hand.”
With campusM, we found a solution that will grow with our students and will enable us to place Southern Miss in the palm of their hand.
“Ex Libris is excited to work with USM and directly support its student success initiative,” said Ed Jamieson, Ex Libris Vice President of Research and Student Solutions Sales. “campusM will bring timely, critical services and communications to students and notify them when they need to take action to stay on course in their academic journey. We are proud of the work that USM and Ex Libris have accomplished—starting a project and going live in just six weeks! This achievement demonstrates an exceptional collaborative partnership and two very agile organizations.”
