Social Media and News
News feeds to your students doesn't just give them what they want to see, but what they NEED to see. Mainstream news, university/college news streams, bus timetables and many more feeds can be integrated into your dashboards.
Current affairs are a huge part of education, learning how the world works can make a good essay into a brilliant one. As much as reading broadens the mind, keeping up with social media can give students a wider knowledge of what is happening around them.
It isn’t just local, national and international news, it can be institution specific updates, is there an open day that current students need to be aware of? Are exam timetables out? Have all this information instantly broadcast to everyone on campus, through the Digital Campus on your myday product.
The Facebook tile displays a Facebook page on a dashboard ensuring that all myday users can see the public side of the institution without needing to "like" the page. This ensures that users receive information related to them as an individual, as a member of a course or department and receive the overall institution news and updates posted within a Facebook page.
Like the Facebook tile, the Twitter tile displays the feed of a twitter handle without requiring the myday user to have to follow a particular user.
The myday “News Room” which provides the end-user a place to view all news based on internal (to myday) feeds and external feeds, consumed by RSS/ATOM. The news room displays a mashed-up view of the latest news stories on its live tile along with a latest entries feed in the main app. Filtering by feed can also simplify access to relevant news. End users can choose which feeds they want to subscribe to: Internal feeds are created and give the myday administrator control over whether a feed automatically appears (opt-out), discoverable (opt-in) or mandatory. Furthermore, groups are used to manage Editors who can post and Audiences who can see the feed.
