UW Releases BlackBerry App
The school says it's become the first educational institution to provide campus information on BlackBerry handheld devices with the UW BlackBerry application it announced today at the Educause conference in Denver.
The application, developed in collaboration with Washington, D.C.-based Blackboard Inc., offers course catalogs, campus directories, maps, news, photos and sports scores in a mobile format.
Yes, UW already made one for the iPhone.
"This new platform allows us to easily reach our students, faculty and staff around the clock and deliver information whenever and wherever they want it, which increasingly is on mobile devices like the BlackBerry and iPhone," David Morton, UW Technology's director of mobile communications, said in a statement.
