Enderun Colleges recently introduced the Enderun app, an exclusive mobile phone app that offers students, faculty, employees, and alumni a new way to stay connected. The Enderun app revolutionises student life by introducing a fun and engaging way to stay connected through posts, videos and even polls inside groups based on their specific interests called channels. The Enderun app is a platform that supports the development of a well-cared-for online learning community.
“Our new platform is intended to be an enabler of Enderun's innovative approach to education: one anchored on the free flow of ideas for innovation and striving for shared knowledge to nurture a common culture of initiatives beyond the classroom, among all members of our community—students, faculty, and staff—across all departments,” says President Edgardo Rodriguez. “It also provides us with a reliable and ready means for coming together when a major disaster strikes.”
The Enderun app features channels that cater to the students' interests such as the various academic departments, events, mentors, news, registered student organizations, and resources. Based on their interests and career path, students choose which channels they wish to join and even create their own channels subject to approval to customise their unique student experience. Enderun App founder Joey Tuason shares, “The pandemic showed schools that learning does not have to be restricted to the four classroom walls anymore. Building a digital campus community is a step towards bridging the gap between how school is conducted and how students learn today."
Official school channels and push notifications are in place to ensure the whole community is informed of important activities and announcements. “For a school, especially one that's growing, to run on solid ground, it is necessary to have complete, timely, and reliable information in hand continuously. The new Enderun App is designed to deliver such information, and much more,” says President Edgardo Rodriguez.
For easier accessibility, channels are searchable and contain resources like the school handbook, online curriculum and even the academic calendar. Students can also access their classes and grades inside the app.
Enderun app manager Izzy Matias shares, “The Enderun App was built to elevate the Titan experience and provide an avenue for everyone to come together to share their expertise and knowledge, make important announcements, and invaluable connections.” It is a place to experience the Titan spirit online and designed to be an essential part of a Titan’s day. “As we say, it is everything Enderun in one app.”
