Louisiana-Lafayette launches app support for Banner, Moodle

Andrew Hudson   ||   Dec 02, 2016  ||   ,

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has launched a new campus mobile app designed to provide more convenient student access the campus' most frequently used systems and accounts.

According to a report from student publication, The Vermillion, the app is powered by Ellucian and is free to download in the App Store and Google Play. Ellucian’s app was designed to replace UL Lafayette's previous mobile app, which was released in 2010.

Once downloaded, students can enter their ULID to access services such as Zimbra mail accounts, ULink, Banner Self Service and account statements. Students can also access their class schedules via the app, as well as find direct links to UL Lafayette’s social media sites and RaginCajuns.com.

According to a university release, the app's interface is divided into various tabs to present users with the various utilities in a efficient manner. Within the app, a “Campus Information” tab provides the university website’s news feed and campus contact list. Also included is a “My UL Lafayette” tab that enables students to access courses, grades and financial aid information. Finally, additional features are housed in a “Tools and Resources” tab, which is then further segmented into Zimbra, Moodle and ULink options.

Campus visitors can also download the app for expedited access to campus news, an interactive map and mobile tour complete with addresses, as well as images and descriptions of campus buildings and landmarks.

In order to access the full suite of features, students must enter both their CLID -- a three-letter and four-digit code -- and their ULID -- a one-letter and eight-digit code -- to access their university accounts. The app requires only one login prompt to access all services. Campus visitors, meanwhile, don't have to log in to use the interactive campus map or university news features.
