Southern Illinois University Edwardsville today announced the launch of SIUE Mobile, a free mobile campus application that brings university life to popular smartphones and mobile devices.
SIUE Mobile lets the SIUE community get and stay connected wherever they are. The app offers mobile access to campus maps, the entire course catalog, event calendars, sports schedules and more. It even has a directory that allows students to email or call professors and classmates.
Students, faculty and staff can download the application for free through app stores. Developed by Blackboard Mobile, a division of education technology company, Blackboard Inc., the app also is expected to be popular with prospective students, parents, alumni and other members of the University community.
"We want to offer our students and other members of our community the best in technology and access, and that means making SIUE services and information available to mobile users," said Associate Vice Chancellor for Information Technology Jennifer Vandever.
