Indiana University announced it is launching a new user experience and course scheduling tool for students, advisors, and staff across its 7 campuses. And through the partnership with HighPoint Technology Solutions, over 90,000 Indiana University students will have access to HighPoint Campus Experience and HighPoint Schedule Builder.

These real-time tools will enable students to search and register for courses in a human-centric way comparable to consumer-facing applications.

The HighPoint Campus Experience features a modern user interface to Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions — which utilizes design-thinking principles and behavioral science techniques to promote better outcomes for students and institutions. And HighPoint Scheduler Builder provides students and advisors an intuitive interface to build an ideal class schedule in real-time.

“It’s an understatement to say we are excited to partner with Indiana University,” said HighPoint Technology Solutions owner & CEO George Amalor. “They are considered by many as the leader in technology innovation in the higher education sector, so their confidence in us to provide their most critical assets, their students, with the best user experience is motivating. We have a shared commitment to design-thinking and student success, and we look forward to collaborating for years to come.”

PeopleSoft Campus Solutions was designed in the ’90s by software engineers at a time when student success and user experience needs were drastically different.

Since students are busier than ever, they want their software to work for them so they can graduate on-time with less debt. And HighPoint tools capitalize on these design needs as well as leveraging the years of investment that institutions have already made in PeopleSoft Campus Solutions.

“While PeopleSoft Campus Solutions continues to serve us well as the foundation of our Student Information System, the user experience it provides for our students does not align with modern expectations of usability and mobile-friendliness. HighPoint’s products allow us to leverage our existing investment in PeopleSoft while delivering a vastly improved Student Center experience that was designed with students in mind,” explained Indiana University Associate Vice President for Enterprise Systems Laurie Sullivan.
