A University campus is a place where a lively community of students, researchers and institutions perform their daily operations supported by Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Our ambitious goal is to increase the number of services, involving a growing community and exploiting its creativity in all parts of the project.

PARTICIPATORY DESIGN

Our approach has been to involve all stakeholders from the start, through interviews, field studies, questionnaires, focus groups and other techniques. This ensures that services offered to users are the ones they really need and that a core community of users is implicated in the design and development from the start.

PLATFORM

Smart Campus uses semantic technologies to enhance user content organizing, tagging, searching, sharing, discovering friends and more. For example, when searching for something the user can find results that are from words with a similar meaning (like “dog” and “canine”). This semantic technology is being constantly improved to give better results and offer new services to the Smart Campus platform.
