Implementation and Use Case for Modo Labs at EDUCAUSE

Modo Labs will be at Booth #1930 sharing our Kurogo Mobile Campus for Higher Education mobile app platform. Mobile apps are becoming the central communication and engagement tool for university campuses and while many schools already have an app, the time has come to move beyond the basics and approach mobile with a robust, modern app with advanced features like messaging, personalization, indoor maps, and dynamic, ad-hoc modules.
