Belmont Unveils First Mobile App
Belmont released its first official mobile app, a free combination product that offers access to public Belmont information (Belmont app) as well as a secondary secure MyBelmont app for students, faculty and staff to reach their personal information on mobile platforms. A third app, for Belmont Bruins athletics, is also included. These new additions to campus life are a direct result of Media Studies Professor Dr. Sybril Bennett’s submission last year to the Belmont Challenge, an ongoing project that encourages faculty and staff to recommend ideas–in this case, ones based on technology–that can improve student learning and contribute to the effectiveness of the University as a whole. Now that the app is available, the Mobile App Team hopes to monitor usage over the next several months and analyze the most popular functions. The team will also be looking for additional feedback on what modules to add next. The Belmont app is now available for free in the iTunes and Google Play stores–simply search for Belmont University.
