Working with NUS Digital (National Union of Students), we are developing a whole new platform – MARBLES – to allow the NUS to interact with students and colleges in the future. The idea is very Apple in approach.
The key insight was in understanding the needs of students to manage their lives – academic, social, personal, functional, financial, etc – and therefore to be a useful and active partner.
Although the project is still in development, and therefore covered by an NDA, what we can tell you is its core revolves around a calendar that interacts with all aspects of a student’s life.
MARBLES will also create valuable insight data about students behaviour, allowing the NUS to better meet the needs of their 7m members.
