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.
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
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!
