Solution Highlights


Courses Module

The Courses functionality helps students access information quickly. From grades to assignments, course details to discussions, students depend on these functions most frequently in campus mobile apps created with DubLabs.


Notifications and Dashboards

Automated, personalized push notifications help keep students up to date on important information for academics, finances and campus life. The easily accessible dashboard puts everything in one place, providing badges to show number of new grades, assignments and more in one easy view.


Campus Life Features

Each college and university is different – and each student wants to stay up to date with different things. Campus life features can range from sporting events, news, social media to available laundry services, computers or even what’s on the dining hall menu.


App Management Portal

Branding and customizing your mobile app is easy using DubLabs’ App Management Portal. Organize functions, change icons, add modules and check app use statistics – all from one easy-to-use portal.


Native SIS, LMS and Other Integrations

By using web services and APIs, data from your SIS and LMS is pulled together and presented in a way that’s easy for students to understand and use. Unlike responsive pages that just reformat content to fit a smaller screen, the proprietary DubLabs native integration is the backbone of this engaging mobile solution. And our team manages your integrations for you.


DubLabs Pages

Need a quick user experience to support parents’ weekend, an alumni event or SGA? DubLabs Pages make it easy to create one page or even a series of pages on the fly, with drag-and-drop flexibility.
