ITT Tech: Intellicourse
ITT Technical Institute is a private college system with 148 campuses in 48 states and a current enrollment of 71,000. It offers programs in business, drafting and design, information technology, criminal justice and nursing, along with several online degrees. ITT’s aim is to develop skills and knowledge that can be used in the workplace.
Many ITT Tech students work all day and attend class at night. The institute wanted to provide learning materials they could study wherever and whenever they had time. At coffee break. On the bus. Getting a quick snack after work. It wasn’t practical for the students to be lugging around expensive, heavy books. They needed something portable with coursework they could relate to.
In addition, ITT Tech was looking for a content management system that staff and teachers could easily and efficiently use to create coursework and track progress.
Working with ITT Tech, we designed and built an Intellicourse app for 10-inch Android tablets, which can also be accessed on the Web. With it, students can study in advance what will be covered in the classroom, helping them learn faster and better retain material. The app contains printed content that you would find in any textbook along with many multimedia elements. Video interviews, animations, documentary footage, graphics, interactive elements that evaluate how much is being absorbed. The tablet solutions has been rolled out to more than 1000 students so far.
For faculty and staff, we developed a content creation so they can create and manage course work and content for classes.
A third component of our work for ITT Tech was a recruitment tool to increase enrollment. This app collects data and relays the information back to a centralized CRM system. Potential applicants are given personalized tour guides showing areas to visit during the tour and how much time to spend at different on-site locations, enhancing their on-campus experience.
We built in these CMS features for recruiters:
- Login using ITT-Tech S3 system
- Search for a potential student in ITT-Tech S3 system
- Register a student into the ITT-Tech S3 system
- View and update student contact information, school information, citizenship and military standing
With these new apps, ITT Tech can keep up with and ahead of the revolution in wireless networks, applications and devices that is fundamentally transforming education.
