Your alumni base is about to undergo dramatic shifts. Mobility and social connectedness are paramount now. Traditional means of communication aren’t as effective as they used to be. Young alumni may prefer to be communicated with via text messages or social media instead.
By utilizing Blackboard solutions, Alumni Development Officers can employ new approaches that will help connect more effectively with a changing audience.
Start your students off with the convenience of an official campus mobile app. They’ll have instant access to all their courses, campus news, directory, campus services, and more. It can keep them connected to every aspect of their campus experience. Then after they graduate, that mobile app stays on their phone and becomes their window back into the university, back to a world they know and love and want to stay connected to. That same mobile app could also provide a way for them to give back.
Blackboard Connect lets you communicate with alumni in more personalized ways - from campus news sent via email to hearing about new research initiative over recorded voice messages to athletics updates via text messages. You can reach them in a more personal one-to-one marketing experience all centered around opt-ins and mobile communication avenues like text messages, social media posts, recorded voice or email messages.
