Description: 

The development project for a new OSU mobile app was kicked off on 3/17/2016. The project will deliver a student-focused tool that will provide general information services as well as native integration with curricular and administrative systems. Availability of this app will allow students to get more work done via phones and tablets, devices that they increasingly depend on as their primary connection to the internet. The goal of this new service is to improve the user experience for current and prospective students, increase student engagement and retention, and contribute to student success.

 

Status Summary: 

Phase 1 of the Mobile App project is complete.  The app was announced to students via email on June 1st.  There have been 4000 downloads thus far, and daily usage at this point is strong.  

Phase 2 of OSU Mobile is underway.  Work has begun on the Cascades version of OSU Mobile.  We plan to add "holds" and "My Bill" views to the app for students to use this Fall.

We will form a student advisory group to gather input.

We will upgrade mobile.oregonstate.edu to help the OSU Community find additional mobile resources/apps that will improve their OSU experience.
