February 21, 2002

Campus Pipeline, Inc. announced that five Pennsylvania colleges and universities have purchased licenses to use the

Campus Pipeline(TM) Web Platform to provide centralized Web access to campus

information and services, e-learning, and communities.

The institutions purchasing traditional licenses to use the Campus Pipeline

Web Platform include:

The Campus Pipeline Web Platform is enterprise integration software that serves

as a foundation for the digital campus — a network that integrates data,

portals, calendars, and other campus technologies under a single online roof,

giving campus constituents anytime, anywhere access to an institution’s

information, services, and communities. The Campus Pipeline Web Platform can

be fully integrated with an institution’s choice of legacy and future applications

and information systems, making the most of technology investments.

Today, more than 150 institutions of higher education throughout Canada, the

United States, and United Kingdom rely on the Campus Pipeline Web Platform to

power their digital campuses. The Web Platform produces measurable improvements

to student service while decreasing operational costs.

For example, Campus Pipeline partner institutions report:

  • Decreasing calls to the help desk while increasing constituent access to

    integrated services,

  • Reducing the time faculty need to create online course support and increasing

    faculty use of technology, and

  • Increasing availability of information to appropriate constituents while

    reducing news distribution costs and timelines.

Based on open standards, the Campus Pipeline Web Platform can integrate with

student information systems (SIS), learning management systems (LMS) and other

applications from vendors including CARS, CMDS, Datatel, Jenzabar, Oracle, PeopleSoft,

Poise, Sallie Mae, SCT, Blackboard, e-College, Prometheus and WebCT, enabling

institutions to create a one-stop digital campus. Pricing for the Campus Pipeline

Web Platform is based on institution size and customization requirements.
