Random Thoughts on Instructional Design

The Evolution of the Mobile Campus

Seton Hall presented this session and gave a brief history of mobility at the institution. They have contracted with Blackboard for the development of mobile institutional apps and a mobile website which Blackboard hosts, but it contains mostly public information about the institution. They stated that the audience for the app was students, faculty, administration, families, and the community. I question how one app can meet the needs of this diverse user group, but I did not pursue this within the session.

Seton Hall is currently working on Library Services Apps and on integrating Single Sign-on for the apps so authenticated users can access secured services.

In terms of pedagogical applications, the goal is to be device and carrier agnostic. The sciences are primarily using mobility initiatives. Apps/software being used include PubMed App (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pubmed-on-tap/id301316540?mt=8),  Dino Software (no details available), and free apps for creating audio and image based podcasts.
