University College is the online and adult division of Azusa Pacific University (APU), based in Southern California. Since 2011, they have offered affordable and flexible degree options for non-traditional students. Mike Wilday, Managing Lead Technologist in the Learning Design and Engagement Department, joined the team shortly after the school was created.
In 2014, Mike had been personally using GQueues for a few years when his department began searching for a task management system that would support more efficient collaboration. The team tried several others, but none of them integrated with Google products, which they had been using since their inception. Mike explained that it made perfect sense for them to adopt GQueues since it integrated so smoothly with Google Apps for Education.
Since choosing GQueues for the Learning Design and Engagement Department, Mike and his team have been able to focus on things that really matter, like designing learning tools and courses that will help students succeed. He explained that putting all of their to-dos in GQueues has helped them stay on top of things and complete projects more efficiently as a team.
“For the cost and for what you get out of the product, it's extremely affordable, and extremely powerful, and it just continues to get better,” Mike noted.
