Nottingham Business School Education

Student services in Nottingham Business School

Nottingham Business School is a part of the Nottingham Trent University. It has over 5,000 students enrolled and it prides itself on its focus to providing a stimulating learning environment to its students and on practical experiences from real world.

The management decided to implement an information platform that will be easily accessible to all students, so that no student can say that they had no way of knowing something they were supposed to know.

Background

The managment focused on the three key categories of “I did not know...” excuses. The first category contains school curriculum and communications with lecturers. The second and the third categories deal with information about jobs on offer (post-graduation) to students in domestic and international markets respectively.

Challenge

When we undertook this project we knew we would have to excel and exceed our previous achievements. The User interface foundation was our PandoPad® Custom Desktop application that had to be significantly adapted to suit the project requirements.

Our approach

Creative tasks involved design and creation of content required to present appropriate user interface as well as the content for use in various PandoPad applications. Also, PandoPad had to be integrated with existing CMS applications.

Solutions

We deployed PandoPad® FLOOR 55LT units in white colour. They were deployed as a cluster of three units made to look as a single device. Consequently, the cabinet exteriors were covered with decorative foil. They are powered by PandoPad® INTERACTIVE Client, whilst the content is managed through PandoPad® Manager.
