After about a year of research and development, IT Development and Applications (ITDA) is pleased to announce the availability of Blackboard Mobile Learn for ANGEL, and our custom-written Student Services Mobile web app, accessible from any mobile browser, that features useful functionality for Scranton students, including access to grades and course schedules.
A survey of the campus community in March 2012 found that students overwhelmingly wanted mobile access to the ANGEL LMS, as well as to class schedules and final exam schedules. Based on that feedback, the University has licensed the Blackboard Mobile Learn for ANGEL app, which can be downloaded from app stores for free use on iOS, Android and Blackberry devices.
IT has also finished work on the initial version of Student Services Mobile applications which allows students to: Check Grades, View Full Schedule, View Channel Guide, Visit the Library, and Visit The Aquinas. Near the end of each semester, students can also view the schedule of final exams. Student Services Mobile has been added to the Scranton app, and is also available by going directly to http://m.scranton.edu/studentservices.
