Announcing Mobile First for The Modern Campus: Join us in Raleigh, NC

It is with great excitement that we are partnering up with North Carolina State University and Edtech Consortium to bring a new event to higher education: Mobile First for the Modern Campus.

Connecting with students on a mobile device is becoming less of an option – it’s a quickly developing necessity. More and more universities every day are turning to mobile campus apps to inform and engage, but as is the case with any new technology, the path isn’t always set in stone.


Analysts say that more than 60 percent of prospective college students will be first introduced to a university through their mobile device.


That’s why the Mobile First for the Modern Campus Summit was born. For the first time ever, Mobile First gives us a chance to bring together both seasoned vets of mobile implementations and beginners who are only starting to explore campus apps. Our speakers will offer guidance on the best ways of approaching mobile technology and managing a successful implementation.

Whether you’re in IT, Student Affairs, Admissions & Enrollment, Marketing & Communications, or pretty much any other department on campus, we’ll have sessions for you. And regardless of if you’ve built an app for your department before, or just have a curiosity about getting started, come join us for a day of learning and networking.
