1calendar - Harnessing the Power of Social Media in Student Schedules

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK and COVENTRY, UNITED KINGDOM and BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA and SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - 1calendar and partner CELCAT announce the distribution of web and mobile applications to millions of students globally at DEMO Fall 2011.

Students worldwide receive course schedules from their schools on paper or via a web site from the scheduling provider or SIS. When changes occur, or if students try to merge their course schedule with their private calendar, they face difficulties leading to frustration, missed classes, overlooked appointments or delays.

The solution is a service that authenticates the individual student, locates the appropriate school schedule and, with a web calendar application, provides automated, synchronized real-time updates for Android and iPhone mobile calendar apps. The service also provides support for private activities and e-learning platforms. Additionally, the service integrates with social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Google calendars. Thus, all schedule information is combined in one calendar and delivered in a timely fashion to its mobile patrons.

The service is appropriately called 'CELCAT 1calendar.'

CELCAT, with 400 clients worldwide, is a leader in providing scheduling software for Universities and Colleges. Its flagship product is the popular CELCAT Timetabler, used to generate schedules for millions of students internationally.

1calendar is a young web and mobile app company started for and by students.

"Our goal has always been to deliver a service that effectively aggregates data from different sources to make student life less complicated. The school schedule is the centrifugal force in student life, and yet there has been so little innovation in the area of effectively delivering the schedule to students," said Daniel Daugaard, CEO at 1calendar.

Integrating CELCAT Timetabler with the services from 1calendar enables Universities and Colleges worldwide to provide a personalized web and mobile experience to their students in a way that transcends the institution.

"CELCAT 1calendar is a plug-and-play solution. This means that educational institutions can get started with the service in less than a day. It requires no integration or maintenance, and we are pleased to announce this service, at the most competitive prices in the industry," said Vernon Chapman, Sales Director at CELCAT.

The 'CELCAT 1calendar' technology

  • the schedule in a web and mobile based calendar tailored for educational institutions

  • ability to view schedules 24/7 with offline access
  • integration of e-learning platforms and attendance monitoring

1calendar is in the process of partnering with major providers of administrative software for educational institutions to further expand its market reach and potential.

More than 70 larger educational institutions are scheduled to pilot the 'CELCAT 1calendar' service, and new institutions are joining on a daily basis.

"The services from 1calendar will completely innovate the way in which students around the world receive their school schedules!" said Matt Marshall, executive producer, DEMO.
