Developing Technologies is focused on providing innovative, creative and out of the box ideas and skills to drive the next generation of data-driven web, mobile and desktop experiences for students and faculty. We collaborates with faculty to imagine, create, and develop apps; deploy and integrate emerging technologies; and provide students with new learning opportunities beyond the classroom. Through these efforts, we integrate technology into course content, stimulate inquiry, and encourage further investigation by creating connections into multiple disciplines.
Our first mobile app, bConnected has received rave reviews from students over the years and has thousands of downloads. In 2016, over 80% of the incoming freshmen class logged into and used the app. bConnected provides students real-time access to course schedules, student organizations, campus housing, financial aid, grades and other key pieces of academic information. More than a simple self-service app, bConnected helps students connect with everyone around them, including classmates, instructors, and advisors.
Through collaborative efforts with instructors, the Digital Corps, and others within Information Technology, the team has won several awards and app challenges, including:
We seek out projects that cover the spectrum of technologies and devices, including Android and iOS apps for smartphones, tablets and TV; research and development with third party tools and products; and projects utilizing wearables like smartwatches and Google Glass.
