Build a Community

Successful educational institutions value each of the members who make-up their community and work towards fostering their personal success.

In education more than in any other field, the success of an institution is identified with the success of each of its members. With Digication, any learning community can take steps to realize their members’ aspirations by enabling them to achieve their goals effectively and by recognizing their achievements in visible ways. This means that the more widespread the use of Digication becomes at an institutional level, the more opportunities there are for institutional development and for personal achievement.

Talk of adoption and wide implementation of a new technological platform can bring up mixed feelings on any campus, as well as seem daunting to those who are already committed to the project’s value. Yet there are compelling reasons to think that the process of adopting and evangelizing Digication can be efficiently managed to create rapid and widespread impacts that benefit the learning community as a whole.

Digication is for Everyone

Digication is designed to meet the needs of all the members of a learning community: students, faculty, institutional leaders, and administrators.

Once the relevant categories of members become aware of the ways in which Digication can aid them to meet their objectives, the urgent questions will shift from “Why adopt Digication?” to “How can I adopt Digication?”.

This is why it is important for Digication evangelists to speak to their campus audiences about how the Digication platform is valuable to them given their goals, motivations, and commitments, and stress the fact that Digication responds to their already existing interests. As such, Digication does not create false needs but enables the members of the learning community to meet their already specified objectives and achieve the goals they are already motivated to achieve. There is no motivational gap between the adoption of Digication, and the intrinsic motivations for achievement held by students, faculty, and administrators.

In conclusion, the adoption and widespread implementation of Digication needs to be understood as a natural and seamless continuation of an institution’s projects for development and for enabling personal success.
