Community College of Qatar collaborates with Ellucian
Country initiative will use Banner by Ellucian to meet national education goals
The Community College of Qatar (CCQ) has announced that it will implement Ellucian's Banner Student solution in support of "Qatari 2030 national vision to develop talent and support outstanding student accomplishments."
Banner Student, which helps with admissions, registration, curriculum management, advising and assessment, will restructure CCQ's student administration to run on Banner and offer specific programs with the aim of accelerating student success.
"Ellucian has worked with Qatari institutions for nearly a decade and we are excited to see the National Vision becoming a reality," said Mathew Boice, vice president of EMEA and India, Ellucian.
"We look forward to working with CCQ to provide better capabilities to support the growth of the student body and the breadth of the learning options as the College continue to nurture and grow their Qatari talent community. Our strategic partnership will not only cater to CCQ's digital generation of students, but also meet the needs of traditional learners, thereby supporting a key pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030, which is the development of all people to enable them to sustain a prosperous society."
Designed to give the faculty at both the Community College of Qatar and Qatar University a more personalised connection with students, Banner Student is also said to provide CCQ students with better opportunities to advance their education in Qatar through ease of communication, learning options, pathways and curriculum with Qatar University.
"Higher education institutions, today, face increasing pressure while coping with advances in technology and emerging industries," said Dr. Nabil Ajineh, chief information officer for the Community College of Qatar.
"Ellucian's Banner road map provides a clear direction regarding integration with learning and enterprise systems while allowing CCQ the flexibility to continue to evaluate and maintain its degree offering in alignment with existing and emerging industries' skillsets requirements."
