Algonquin College of Kuwait deploys Ellucian PowerCampus
College has set up online admissions portal and reached enrollment target as result of implementation
Algonquin College of Kuwait, the recently launched Middle East campus of the Algonquin College of Applied Arts and Technology in Canada, has become the first institute in Kuwait to implement the Ellucian PowerCampus solution, it was announced last week.
The PowerCampus product allows institutions to manage admission needs by digitally organising a number of administrative procedures.
Since the introduction of PowerCampus, Algonquin College said that it has been able to set up its online admissions portal and achieve its enrollment target. Additionally, the system supports registrations, calendaring, and transcript activities for all students, the college said.
"We wanted to find the right technology to handle the processes of enrollment, communication plans, and the management of vital administrative tasks," said Saud Jafar, Algonquin College's chairman.
"We strive to use the best technology to support our students and invest in measures that make learning easily accessible. Ellucian PowerCampus allows us to support and streamline administrative responsibilities and helps students perform tasks more effectively."
Another benefit of PowerCampus, the college said, is that it creates and shares analytics-based network reports related to institutional performance, helping colleges and universities monitor their progress and goals.
"We are very excited about the partnership between Ellucian and Algonquin College as they open their doors to students in 2015. The college understands the importance of technology for students and the running of their institution, and has implemented solutions that not only benefit learners, but help to cement its presence in the region as innovative and forward thinking," said Mathew Boice, MEA vice president at Ellucian.
"With Kuwait and the rest of the GCC continuing to expand their education offerings, institutions are turning to technology to support their development needs."
