How card offices are promoting Mobile Credential

A quick look at student informational resources

Andrew Hudson   ||   Oct 12, 2018  ||   

Blackboard's Mobile Credential on Apple devices has been available to students at launch campuses for nearly two weeks now. While exact enrollment data isn't yet available, it's safe to assume that things are moving in a positive direction.

Key to getting students involved with Mobile Credential, however, will be informative marketing material. All three of the launch campuses, the University of Alabama, the University of Oklahoma, and Duke University, have provided dedicated informational resources to its campus communities to aid in the enrollment process.

At Duke, all the necessary information is readily available to the campus community via the DukeCard website. As an added resource, the DukeCard office has compiled an informative video to lay out the use cases for Mobile Credential and how to get started:

The University of Alabama has also pull together all the necessary resources for students interested in enrolling with Mobile Credential. The Action Card website now features a dedicated resource page for Mobile Credential, along with an informative video of its own:

And there's a light-hearted reminder, as well:

The third launch campus, the University of Oklahoma, has also provided all the necessary information on its Sooner Card website. The site offers clear and easy to navigate resources for the enrollment process, device requirements, and other need-to-know details about Mobile Credential, making enrollment a breeze for students.

Thanks to the efforts of the participating card offices, it's clear that students on the Mobile Credential launch campuses won't be short on the key information.
