Pellissippi State Community College has become the first community college in Tennessee to offer accessibility to important and timely college information via a mobile app powered by AT&T. The application is available for free download on Android, Apple and Blackberry devices.
The new feature allows Pellissippi State students to access their class schedules, final grades, selected online classes, the mobile library site and additional tools. Members of the community can access the college’s academic and event calendars, YouTube video feed, current school news, campus maps and phone directory.
Adding an application that is accessible via cell phones, mobile tablets and mobile personal digital assistants gives current and potential students and community members the opportunity to connect to the most up-to-date information in whatever way is most convenient for them.
According to a forecast by Cisco, a worldwide networking leader, the number of mobile-connected devices was expected to outstrip the world’s population count by the end of 2012.
“We are excited to deliver the latest in accessibility to our students, faculty, staff and community members,” said L. Anthony Wise Jr., president of Pellissippi State. “Mobile apps are in high demand because they provide information readily and with ease of use.
“Pellissippi State has been a leader in technology for more than 35 years, and we’re pleased to remain at the forefront of technological delivery.”
