Modern Campus acquires DIGARC to enhance the student experience
Modern Campus, a modern learner engagement platform, is acquiring DIGARC, a provider of academic catalog and curriculum management, class, and student scheduling and student pathfinder software for higher education.
The acquisition enables Modern Campus to accelerate its commitment to customer success by revolutionizing learner engagement with massively personalized digital experiences.
Modern Campus will integrate its web experience platform and personalization engine with DIGARC’s comprehensive course curriculum management software.
Together, they will empower higher education institutions to solve two of the biggest challenges they face today: attracting and converting prospective students, and creating a highly personalized and engaging pathway to on-time graduation.
Founded in 2001, DIGARC is committed to aiding higher education institutions to engage students through the power of a connected, integrated curriculum. DIGARC enhances the student experience, helping them better navigate degree planning, and ultimately improve retention and graduation rates.
With DIGARC, Modern Campus Omni CMS and Personalization by Modern Campus, higher education institutions can enable a modern student catalog experience with personalized content, pathways and recommendations.
“There’s never been a more exciting time in higher education. The modern learner is a savvy consumer and their expectations of higher education institutions have changed. They expect a highly personalized, Netflix-like experience. They’re primarily focused on maximizing the return on one of the most important and largest investments they’ll make – their post-secondary education,” said Brian Kibby, chief executive officer of Modern Campus. “For colleges and universities experiencing decreased enrollment, they need every advantage available to attract, engage and graduate the modern learner on time. The combination of DIGARC and Modern Campus helps deliver this, combining a highly personalized web experience with world-class catalog navigation.”
This transaction marks the second acquisition by Modern Campus in 2021; the company acquired interactive campus map and virtual tour provider nuCloud in March.
“This is a perfect next step in DIGARC’s evolution and our ‘Connected Curriculum’ strategy. Since its founding, DIGARC has supported student recruitment and retention by engaging students via a powerful, connected, integrated curriculum,” said Richard Becker, chief executive officer at DIGARC. “Together with Modern Campus, we’ll be able to deepen relationships with our higher education partners and extend our ability to improve user experience, establish a single source of truth across campuses and support student recruitment and retention.”
