Default University of Phoenix Android app now available

Going to class online is gaining in popularity, and many people rely on online schools like the University of Phoenix for their education. The University of Phoenix realizes many of us use smartphones daily, and they wanted to make things easier for their students, so they have developed an application that is now available on Android. Setting time aside to attend your class is one thing, but trying to keep up with class discussions, grade postsings and all the other jazz that goes with it is where it gets tricky, but this is where the app comes into play with features like:
  • Participate in online classroom discussion forums
  • Draft and post to discussion threads, and reply to your classmates’ posts
  • vView, edit and save drafts of your discussion posts
  • View message flags, discussion questions and class announcements
  • Receive real-time alerts when grades are posted
  • Receive real-time alerts when your instructor posts new threads or responds to your messages

If you are currently attending University of Phoenix, or know someone who is, hit the break for download links to get this free application on your Android device today!

Wow, I'm impressed Phoenix made the effort to add this app. They are ahead of the curve. Eventually, we will see many schools with these kind of apps (or at least schools that want to stay on top of internet trends).

My uni has something similar, called Moodle. We don't have a dedicated app but the mobile site is quite good (seems more sensible, all smartphones have a browser; means you only have to develop for one platform).

We use Blackboard which is similar to that and the University licensed it's apps for iOS, Android, and Blackberry. Additionally the University has it's own app that has maps of campus, a personnel directory, and university related news and alerts including sports scores of the various teams. As far as I know the second app is iOS and Android only.
