After some careful time in development the very first dedicated Edge Hill University app is now available on Android as well as iOS!
Available via free download from the Apple Apps or Google Play stores, the new app brings together useful and interesting features, functions and fun – from Flickr and YouTube to Blackboard Mobile and a Mobile (friendly) library catalogue.
Lets have a look at what’s included…
Events lets you browse what’s coming up on campus – including the Arts Centre, Open Days, Sports events plus much more. Change the view so you can see what’s coming up over the next few days or browse month by month.
Videos lets you view all of Edge Hill University’s videos available on YouTube. Show your friends and family on your mobile exactly what goes on at Edge Hill!
News keeps you up to date with departments’ latest updates and developments – choose from most recent or browse for a particular subject or department.
Images allows you to browse through our Flickr gallery – everything from open days to celebrity visits. Even if you couldn’t make it, don’t miss out on seeing what happened!
Blackboard Mobile Learn is our brilliant app for accessing your module or programme info via your mobile. You can receive updates, announcements, post on discussion forums – plus much, much more! Make studying easy, and take it with you wherever you go!
(iPad users may still wish to install the dedicated Blackboard Mobile app as it displays slightly differently)
Get Help provides every useful number you should ever need for the university – academic support, facilities, IT… the list goes on – you’ll find it all here
Library gives you access to the mobile friendly library catalogue. Use it to search for books or journals, place reservations or check your loans (or fines!)
Mail allows you to log in to your student email account. Most students are now on GMail, so you can access your mobile friendly version of your email, direct from your smart device!
The partnership between Learning Technology, IT Services and Blackboard has enabled us to bring you this app, but remember – this is only the first step! We are looking for some innovative ideas on how it can be improved as we have already started work on the next version! So please, leave comments here on what you would like to see included, updated or improved – we would love to hear from you!
