University goes mobile with new web apps

Students can now access various Blackboard services on their phone with a trial web app built by the University of Lincoln.

Currently named MoLE, short for Mobile Learning Environment, the site allows you to read announcements, check grades, view files, announcements and see your library account information in a format designed to be easy to use on a mobile phone.

The pilot service is supported by most phones with web browsers and can be accessed by going to http://lncn.eu/mole.

MoLE is part of a scheme to make more university services available on mobile phones.

MPath (also a working title) is a portal to the various services and information with mobile support, including the library, university directory, events as well as transport and weather information and it is found at http://m.lincoln.ac.uk/.

The MoLE and MPath services are still in development and ICT services are welcoming feedback and suggestions. You can leave comments on the university’s Get Satisfaction support website.
