As a Campus Cloud administrator, you can use Studio to create tiles that appear in the campus guide. The Campus Guide tiles hold all of the content for your college. You can create different content for different experiences such as Students, Visitors and Staff and for each of these experiences you can divide the content into separate sections.
Here’s all you need to know about the different types of Campus Guide tiles and how to arrange them on the campus app.
- Different types of tiles you can create in the Campus Guide:
You can display all the upcoming events on the campus app and turn on assessment to mark student attendance, enable student feedback and so on.
For more information on how to fill up the events tile, follow the instructions here:
You can put all the Orientation events and information in this tile, create a wall for members attending and even place it as a Featured tile at the top of Home Page.
Here’s all you need to know about creating Orientation Programs.
- Campus Services
Add college services and place their contact information, hours and link at the top to let students easily access information when they tap on individual services. Here’s how you can Create a Service.
- Groups and Clubs
You can help students explore clubs, join them and post on club walls. Each club is added as a Resource List with its logo, contact information, description and web links. Here’s how you can Create a Club.
Link your official athletics page directly to the college app using a web-link and let students view a mobile-friendly version. Web-links are a particular Resource Type and you can learn more about different Resources and Resource Lists.
Put the campus map directly in the campus guide to help students connect with the campus and know all about locations on campus. You can learn more about map functionality in our section on Campus Map.
The dining tile is a list of all dining places within or near the college. Each point on the map displays important information such as hours of operation, contact information, and dietary notes. Get started and Create a Dining Location.
Build a directory of important contacts and students can just call from the app with one click. This tile usually consists of security numbers, administration contact and hotlines.
- Campus Library
Add a web-link of the college library and let students check out books, read online and do everything they possibly can on the website.
The college portal can be accessed directly by the app. Students can view their courses, grades and assignments through the app and stay on top of their academic routines.
Organize all important links in one place such as student email, links to application forms, campus IT and financial aid. This is where you consolidate all external information in one tile for easy access.
- Organize the Campus Guide into Sections
The tiles are the visual presentation of the content you can create such as events, services, maps and many more. You can organize similar tiles together or near other in one section.
We recommend creating the following three sections:
- Featured This Week: showcase your upcoming events for the week such as orientation events or seminars. This is the first thing students will view on their Home Page.
- Student Life: dedicate this section to all student engagement activities. Add Campus Services, Groups & Clubs, and web-links to the Athletics page, Campus Ministry etc.
- Campus Information: Add campus maps, important links, the college directory and the college library.
