Rockies Mobile Classroom App for Smartphones and Mobile Devices Updated with Improved Functionality and Services
App created and developed by Bridgepoint Education's Products team
Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI) and its Products team have just completed the launch of comprehensive updates for the Rockies Mobile app. Version 2.2 for Apple® and Android®-powered mobile devices and smartphones is now available to students and faculty of University of the Rockies, providing them improved online classroom functionality, increased student service options, a new “just-in-time” course interface based on current weekly activity, and quicker feature access.
Bridgepoint originally created Rockies Mobile to provide the students and faculty of University of the Rockies, an academic institution owned by Bridgepoint, with essential online course interaction. The app enables portable mobile devices using Android® or Mac OS® to serve as a conduit between learners and their education, connecting them with their instructors and the University itself.
“Mobile technology has become a great educational enabler,” said Elizabeth Aguiar, Bridgepoint Education’s vice president of Business Development and Product Marketing. “The Rockies Mobile app provides students and instructors instant coursework connectivity, improved online classroom presence, and a host of additional functionality that expands the learning experience.”
Included in the suite of features built into the updated Rockies Mobile classroom app are improvements to discussion navigation, course-view selection, the digital student I.D. (DSID) and the Help Center. These features join innovative new student ledger card access and the “just-in-time” page views in an upgraded Rockies Mobile interface, being rolled out to reflect the University’s new branding. In keeping with this app’s reputation for stability, Version 2.2 has been tested extensively.
Rockies Mobile is a free upload for students and faculty of the University. Updated versions of the Rockies Mobile app are available today via Rockies.edu, as well as through the Apple® store (apple.com/ipad/from-the-app-store/) and Android’s® Market (market.android.com/).
