The Owens Community College Intranet

AQIP communication around the college

Owens Mobile App

Last fall, Owens ITS released the Owens Mobile app for iOS and Android. The purpose of the app was to create an additional point of access to commonly used services for our students. Mobile devices have become inexpensive and ubiquitous, which now behooves the College to communicate with our students through technologies that are part of their everyday lives. Based on architecture provided by Ellucian, the providers of the Banner software used on campus, the app provides several basic services to our students in a mobile-friendly format. Current features of the app include:

– Class Schedule
– Grades
– Owens News Feed
– Campus Maps via Google Maps
– One-touch Access to Facebook & Twitter

The app is available for free from both the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play. We plan to develop additional app services in the future. If you have any suggestions for features to better serve our students, please post your ideas in the comment section.
