Education Organization Adds e2Campus to Discount Buyer Program
- By Dian Schaffhauser
An organization that aggregates the buying power of K-12 and higher education has added an emergency notification service to its member marketplace. Omnilert will be adding e2Campus uAlert to the Organization for Educational Technology & Curriculum (OETC) discount program.
"Schools are at the center of our communities and are an important hub of information," said OETC Executive Director Thomas Richards. "It's imperative that schools embrace communications solutions that allow them to disseminate important information quickly."
e2Campus uAlert allows authorized users to send custom or predefined messages to a group through SMS text message, land line or mobile phone, desktop pop-up, e-mail, pager, social networking sites, digital sign, beacon, public address system, and other modes.
OETC puts on the Instructional Technology Strategies Conference (ITSC) each year. Its membership has 800 United States-based educational institutions, school districts, colleges, and other non-profit organizations.
