Murdoch Uni selects Ex Libris campusM student portal, mobile app


Western Australia’s Murdoch University has selected the Ex Libris campusM student portal and mobile app to enhance and increase student engagement by improving its digital student services as well as providing a dedicated mobile app.

After an extensive market evaluation, Murdoch selected the Ex Libris campusM platform to help the university transform its digital experience for students.

Murdoch says by encouraging student involvement in both social and academic activities, the new myMurdoch student portal and mobile app provides easy access to learning and wellbeing support as well as opportunities for students to connect and collaborate with peers.

Michael Grant, Deputy Chief Operating Officer and Director of IT Services for Murdoch University, said, “The campusM student portal and mobile app platform will enable us to provide a consistent and smooth student experience across various channels and cater to the needs of students wherever they are. Such a unified cross-channel platform will fit nicely with our digital strategy and will offer us many benefits, such as one ‘source of truth’ for student communications throughout the University.”

“Ex Libris has shown a strong commitment to our vision for a student portal that students want to use. They have really responded to our needs and worked with us to tailor the product to our requirements,” said Julie Whitlock, Associate Director, Digital Innovations at Murdoch University.

“We also involved students in the development so the new myMurdoch was concepted by students for students.

“Additionally, Ex Libris is a vendor with a long history and large customer base, providing support in Australia in our time zones. The company understood the unique needs of higher education and were eager to enhance and improve the product. We are looking forward to continuing to work with them in future product enhancements, so we can continue improving the Portal based on student feedback.”

Ziv Benzvi, Vice President of Ex Libris Asia Pacific, said, “We are truly pleased to welcome Murdoch University to the growing number of institutions throughout Australia and globally that are using the campusM student portal and mobile app platform”.

“We are grateful to be part of Murdoch’s student-centric, digital-transformation journey, and we are confident that campusM will assist the University in providing an engaging, up-to-date student experience.”
