Version 1.0 of Volunteer State Community College´s mobile application is officially live, and ready for download on any smartphone.
The new version of the app, MyVolState, in its current state offers features such as read-only access to eLearn and course announcements via push notifications, allowing students on-the-go access to class updates such as assignments and grades.
The app also features campus maps, a calendar for school events, and social media links.
The app can be downloaded from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
Students can also expect more additions to be made to the app.
“As we start moving towards version 2.0 of the app we´ll start adding actual, not just read-only access to d2l, but the ability to interact with forums via the app on your phone or tablet,¨ said Kevin Blankenship, Chief Information Officer.
The app will later allow students mobile access to event sign-ups and interactions with advisors. ¨We´re really looking to add features to make this a more robust and much more student-centric app,” said Blankenship.
