Algonquin College of Kuwait, the recently launched Middle East branch campus of Algonquin College of Applied Arts and Technology in Canada, has partnered with Ellucian to become the first institute in the Gulf nation to implement the Ellucian PowerCampus solution.

Ellucian said PowerCampus allows institutions to efficiently and cost-effectively manage admission needs and, simplifies and organises a number of administrative procedures.

The vendor said since the introduction of PowerCampus, Algonquin College has been able to set up their online admissions and achieve their enrolment target. Additionally, the system supports registrations, calendaring, and transcript activities for all students.

Algonquin College chairman, Saud Jafar, stated: “We wanted to find the right technology to handle the processes of enrolment, communication plans and management of vital administrative tasks. We strive to use the best technology to support our students and invest in measures that make learning easily accessible. Ellucian PowerCampus allows us to support and streamline administrative responsibilities and helps students perform tasks more effectively.”

“We are very excited about the partnership between Ellucian and Algonquin College as they open their doors to students in 2015. The College understands the importance of technology for students and the running of their institution, and has implemented solutions that not only benefit learners, but help to cement its presence in the region as innovative and forward thinking,” said Mathew Boice, vice president, MEA, Ellucian.

Boice added that: “With Kuwait and the rest of the GCC continuing to expand their education offerings, institutions are turning to technology to support their development needs.”
