Last week, UQAM launched UQAM Mobile, the first mobile version of a university website in Quebec.
Developed for smart phones using Android, as well as for Blackberrys and iPhones, this mobile site enables users to find their way around campus thanks to their phone’s GPS system, to access their daily schedule and to quickly find someone on campus.
Very interactive, UQAM Mobile was conceived as a tool to regularly update students about what is going on in and around campus, to send text alerts and to have questions answered quickly. According to Jean-François Tremblay, Project Manager for Technical and Educational Projects in the Audio Department of the university, « [t]he challenge was to gather several applications for students already available on the Web in one single place ».
