From the “Five Edtech Companies to Watch in 2017” article by Eduventures:
Modo Labs – Plug and Play Mobile Apps
In our search for the killer mobile app in higher education, we reviewed many offerings from (learning management system) LMS vendors, and stand-alone apps from third parties. One approach that stood out to us in terms of meeting a need for white-labeled, institution-branded mobile apps was the mobile platform provided by Modo Labs. Institutions can assemble custom mobile apps from pre-built modules that leverage data application program interface (API) connections to their LMS, SIS, or CRM platforms. The technology also leverages native mobile device capabilities to provide notification beacons, geo-fenced classrooms, and scanning of codes for campus events. Modo Labs’ platform is now reaching maturity, with an established developer community that is extending the framework with modules most sought after by the clear majority of institutions—and their students.
As Millennials, and increasingly Generation Z, bring their mobile internet of things to college campuses, an institution’s brand will be helped (or harmed) based on how ready they are to meet expectations for a mobile-connected student experience. Since there isn’t a single one-size-fits-all mobile app for the student experience, Eduventures believes that institutions will instead turn to mobile development frameworks like the one provided by Modo Labs to quickly build out a student experience, to invest in that experience, and to keep it current as student use of mobile technology continues to evolve.
