Lafayette College is an open source-centric institution, so that was the first requirement when we were evaluating solutions. We needed a collaboration system that would fit with our existing DNA.
As we looked into upgrading our communications infrastructure, we never forgot that Results we had to serve mobile users who: read email from their smartphones between classes; text each other from their tablets; and submit and receive assignments via the Web in their dorm rooms, the library or campus offices.
The school has also made the most of Zimbra’s Zimlets – add-on applications that augment the Zimbra email experience – to create a more efficient user interface and enhance the experience of the end user.
We’re seeing more student contact time and an improved student-teacher experience, which is the primary goal for any technology initiative we undertake.
