Bluenotes Community's Mission

Dear Bluenotes Community,

It’s true that amazing things can happen with the right knowledge. With this in mind, the Bluenotes Group was established to allow you to connect with and learn from other higher education institutions.

It all started in 2012 in Melbourne when RMIT called on a group of Blue Australian universities to join an Explorance seminar. The experience was a positive one. A community was established and everyone learned. The success of the event led us to transform the informal user meeting into annual face-to-face four-day global learning events that provide workshops, real-life Blue implementation success story presentations, and a sneak peak of the latest and greatest Blue.

The Bluenotes Group has now taken an online presence to connect our customers virtually so that we can all benefit from the experience and learning of others. The Bluenotes Group is your voice. It is your opportunity to meet and greet fellow Blue users, share your successes and challenges, learn more about the future of Blue, and help refine the vision of Explorance.

We welcome you to the Bluenotes Group: a united family of Blue institutions working along with Explorance for an elevated learning experience.
