In December, our Developers were hard at work constructing two exciting new technical integrations. These integrations create a highly streamlined and easy online experience for your students, allowing them to come to one native and integrated hub for career exploration and advancement.
Our new integration with Graduay allows you to pull alumni profile previews right into the backend of your platform, pre-tagged to the appropriate career community. Admins can pick and choose which users to promote on uConnect.
Each preview imported into uConnect includes the mentor’s name, picture, and place of employment, along with a link to ‘learn more about them’ which directs users to the alumni profile within Graduway. Using SSO, students are automatically logged into their Graduway accounts, creating a seamless experience and reducing any barriers to engage.
For students, alumni can provide inspiration and ideas for future career paths, and serve as vital mentors and guides. Integrating Graduay into your uConnect platform encourages engagement with the tool in an easy, smooth, and contextualized way.
Integrating with CampusLabs for Student Engagement (‘Engage’) allows you to automatically import the events that live in Engage directly to your uConnect platform. Now, along with events stored in your CSM and campus iCalendars, you can include Engage on your uConnect platform alongside a host of other career-related content.
The integration allows you map categories within Engage with your uConnect Event Categories, so that all imported events come pre-tagged to your appropriate event types in uConnect. If users want to learn more, they are automatically directed back to the original event in Engage through SSO, allowing for students and other users to have a effortless and integrated online experience.
