Empowering Education with the Adobe Experience Cloud

Digital experience transformation for one of Australia’s top universities


Our client’s esteemed institution is one of Australia’s first higher-education universities. It is highly recognized for its commitment to cutting-edge research and extensive academic programs. Renowned for their excellence, they offer a wide spectrum of programs and house an inclusive, diverse, vibrant, and multicultural community driven towards making a significant global impact.


In pursuit of an innovative edge, our client embarked on a mission to develop a tailored digital platform to foster collaboration, boost efficiency, and provide seamless access to transformative learning experiences for its community. Without such a platform, effectively engaging all members was daunting, potentially leading to missed opportunities in the digital age.

Moreover, without the ability to offer personalized experiences that were accessible digitally, anywhere and anytime, our client risked falling behind in meeting the evolving expectations of students and stakeholders. They recognized personalization as the key to fostering a sense of belonging within their students in this new day and age, marking it an essential challenge to overcome.

Furthermore, lacking a comprehensive digital platform meant our client couldn’t tap into valuable data-driven insights crucial for informed decision-making and competitiveness in higher education markets. Ultimately, the platform was a step towards enabling the university to leverage its strengths and embrace change.

Our client wanted to empower their learning community with a tailored digital platform to foster transformative learning experiences, meeting evolving needs, and shaping a digital playground for future educational and learning demands.


Crafting a Digital Experience for Academic Excellence

To kickstart our client’s digital transformation journey, we identified the need to blueprint, design, and enable the university with a modern, scalable, and personalized digital experience platform. Choosing Adobe as an apt digitalization enabler, our platform would streamline learning and collaboration experiences for students, researchers, faculty, and alumni.

With a clear vision, we designed and implemented an end-to-end digital experience platform for education, from the ground up. Leveraging our UX expertise, we ensured that user experience remained at the forefront of our efforts for each unique consumer persona.

Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Sites: Initiating Unparalleled Digital Connectivity

Adobe Experience Manager Sites was our choice to bring our client’s vision to life. Using this product from the Adobe Experience Cloud suite, we crafted an experience that prioritized intuitive navigation, accessibility, and personalization. We aimed to boost student-faculty and alumni engagement and satisfaction, transform learning programs to digital-first experiences, enhance student collaboration, and facilitate a network for all university stakeholders to stay informed about current and upcoming examinations, deadlines, campus activities, and more.
