Trumba Service Powers Student's Personal Class Schedules

Melbourne, Australia, October 28, 2020 –Trumba Corporation, a U.S.-based global leader in online calendaring products, announces its partnership with Victoria University to create a personalized calendaring experience for students.

Victoria University (VU) was recently faced with a mounting communications problem. The presentation of key event and class timetables to students used a confusing blend of online and offline methods. VU staff had no consistent system or approach for communicating such information. Hence, they could not guarantee that students were receiving the right information at the right time. Today’s students expect to be able to access all essential information online from any device.

To address this issue and better serve their students, VU partnered with Trumba Corporation to create a personalized student calendaring system. This allows each student to easily access key university information specific to them. Students can now use any device to display their up-todate personal schedules including

  • their personal class timetable,
  • relevant student events,
  • learning opportunities, and
  • administrative services.

The schedules are available in daily, weekly, monthly or list view formats. Students can filter down their events using a variety of custom filter fields. The student’s filter and view preferences persist on the device for future sessions, making for a more personalized experience. Student data is secured using VU’s existing single sign on system.

VU introduced the Trumba calendaring system earlier in 2020. The system is used by roughly 20,000 students and faculty.

According to Daniel Zahra, Project Manager at VU’s IT Services Project Management Office, “The introduction of the calendar has seen increased productivity for staff in the entire students portfolio, enhanced alignment to the University’s financial and environmental sustainability goals and increased satisfaction for students who now have a single source of truth for essential information and processes”.

“Trumba partnered with Victoria University to solve a complex communication problem and customized it specifically to their student’s needs,” said Dan Hickman, CEO of Trumba Corporation. “With Trumba’s customizable architecture, it can be tailored to the unique needs of students at other universities as well”.

Leon Kerr, Director of Student Services added, “At VU, we prioritize providing our students with a future-focused digital experience – to make their study with us seamless and prepare them as tech-savvy grads. Digitally transforming our student calendar has been an important step towards this”.
