The app that is always updated with essential information for the students
Aalborg University wanted to make it more desirable to be a student at Aalborg University – and at the same time make the everyday student life easier for the students. The challenge was to reach as many students as possible across the fields of study. An extra feature developed was a Feel Good component, which the student counseling desired, in order to favor and catch the problems, before they occur at the time of the study. AAU Student was developed in close collaboration with AAU’s app team and student workers. By doing this, we gained an insight into the students’ everyday life, their wishes and needs. The app has thus been developed based on user surveys and workshops.
AAU Student retrieves data from Moodle, which is the students’ “schedule”. The app gives access to all courses, events, news etc. Additionally, the app has reduced the amount of “quick questions” for the student counseling, as it provides answers to the most common things the students experience in their everyday lives.
