Every day around 2,000 creative students develop their abilities within architecture, design and preservation in one of KADK’s many study programs. A solution was needed to make sure the students were able to find the information they needed quickly and with the least amount of fuss.
Now, with students studying remotely, the education industry intranet is more important than ever. The Challenge has been to make sure everyone is aware of what needs to be done, when projects need to be handed in and who they can contact in case of questions.
In the education industry intranet portal educators and students can easily find rooms dedicated to each program and module.
The rooms offer a spot where all information about individual modules and programs are gathered. Furthermore, the rooms allow for a number of actions. Students can hand in assignments by uploading documents. In the same way, educators can share teaching resources, send group emails and easily print lists with contact information and pictures of students.
To create and maintain information about every single of KADK’s modules manually would demand a whole lot of resources. This is why KADK has established processes that ensure this happens automatically.
When KADK’s module catalogue is updated before the start of a new semester, a room is automatically created for each of the catalogue’s modules. A site template makes sure that the rooms contain the right type of content and the right features.
The rooms draw information from the administration system and continuously update lists of students that follow a module. In this way, students are given access to the right rooms, and, at the same time, the display in module rooms of students, that follow a certain module, stays updated.
As employees as well as students in KADK have well-developed competences within visual communication it is particular important for KADK that the organization’s intranet and room portal is visually appealing.
This is why the academy had a custom design made for their LiveTiles solution. The design is consistent throughout the solution. From the front page of the intranet down to single module rooms, the visual line is kept.
The resulting intranet portal is both simple and effective for students and educators to find important information and perform essential actions.
