Athens Technical College Mobile App Launched
Date: Sep 15,2014
The new Athens Technical College mobile app provides quick, easy access to college resources. Available for free download in the Apple and Android app stores, the mobile app delivers news, events, contact information, and access to student-centered applications.
“We are very excited to be able to offer our students access to their student information anytime, anywhere,” said Dr. Leslie Crickenberger, vice president for student affairs. “This is putting their education literally in the palm of their hand.”
Current Athens Technical College students can login to ANGEL, BannerWeb, and their student email directly from the app.
According to Carol Stanley, director of library services, students can borrow an iPad with the app installed for use in the library on the Athens Campus.
“In addition to accessing the library resources, including GALILEO, Learning Express and catalogs, app users can also chat with a librarian,” said Stanley. “Just like on the regular Athens Technical College library website, librarians are available to answer questions about finding and using resources.”
The mobile app is handy for more than just students. TechWire, the Continuing Education course catalog, can be viewed from the app. Prospective students can use the mobile app to find admissions information and to request additional information.
Athens Technical College app users can stay connected and informed with campus news, events, and social media posts via the app. A series of “Mobile App Tips” are posted on the ATC Facebook and Twitter pages.
Funding for the mobile app was provided by the Athens Tech Student Advisory Council.
