|CSULB unveils app|
Looking for everything you need to know about The Beach? There’s an app for that.
The university has rolled out its first version of the CSULBMobile, an app that will include:
“The goal is to provide CSULB students, faculty, staff, alumni, prospective students, and the greater community with easier and greater access to ongoing campus activities and services with a mobile device,” said Leslie Kennedy, CSULB Director of Instructional Technology Support Services.
Nearly 90 percent of adults in the United States now own a cell phone and 46 percent use smartphones, with the largest growth among adults ages 18 to 24, Kennedy said.
“Since university constituents are adopting mobile devices at an increasing rate, universities are strategizing how to utilize mobile applications to create new opportunities to reach out to their constituents,” Kennedy said.
CSULBMobile is slated to be released to Apple, Google and Blackberry stores by Monday, Nov. 12. Kennedy said her team is working to add more updates to the app in the future, including information on alumni, Student Health Services, campus residence halls, dining and more.
