Mobile apps for Leeds
The University is launching two new mobile apps - UniLeeds and Mobile Learn from 7 January 2013. Both will be available for Android, iPhone and BlackBerry devices.
UniLeeds brings together a number of key services and systems. The first version of UniLeeds features personalised timetables and Library records, and also includes University news, campus maps, computer cluster availability and content from LUU.
Once the app has downloaded, information from help@leeds is available offline a feature that will be invaluable in helping students stay safe and well.
Access to personal content is secured with ISS user IDs. More general content is available to all, making UniLeeds useful for a wider audience.
Mobile Learn gives staff and students instant access to the VLE. You can communicate with students using announcements and discussions; add documents, images and multimedia files from your smartphone, tablet device or Dropbox; set student tasks (and see when they have started and completed them); and show students their grades in the VLEs Grade Centre.
You can also use a web browser to create mobile-compatible formative tests then upload them to Mobile Learn. Students will be able to take the tests using Apple iOS and Android devices as well as standard web browsers.
The choice of content and services in both apps was based on student feedback gathered from a Library survey.
If you have enquiries about the apps, please contact ISS Helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org or call 33333).
