College Launches iPhone App
Students can now get all of the latest info from City College Norwich on the move, with the launch of the College’s very own iPhone app.
The free app, now available for download from the App Store, features:
- Information about all of the College’s courses;
- Enquiries - current and prospective students can ask any question via a simple form;
- All of the latest News and details of What’s On at the College;
- General college Information, including maps and useful numbers; and
- An E-Safety section to inform students about staying safe online.
The app aims to provide much of the key information that prospective students, applicants and current students need from the College – but this is only the beginning. The College already has exciting plans for a series of further developments for the app, to provide even more functions in the future.
Among the planned developments are a timetable feature that will automatically upload each student’s individual timetable onto their phone, the ability to report student absences via the app, and access to information about job vacancies, work placements and apprenticeships available through the College’s Employer Partnerships team.
The City College Norwich app will not just be limited to those students with iPhones. The College is already working with the developer of the app to make it available on all smart phone platforms in the near future.
Visitors to the College’s Open Event, taking place on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th April at the College’s main Ipswich Road campus, will be able to see demonstrations of the app and to explore it for themselves.
Dick Palmer, Principal, City College Norwich, said: “With so many of our students now using smart phones it made sense for us to develop a College app. People today expect to have information at their fingertips 24/7 and having an app enables us to do this.
“The app also offers new ways to further enhance our communication with students. We hope that they will use the app to engage with us by asking questions and giving us the benefit of their feedback and suggestions.”
Tom Grant, President, City College Norwich Students’ Union, said: “I welcome the launch of the College’s new app, as many students prefer to access information through their phones. It is great to see the College using the latest technology to meet the needs of students and to support them in their learning.”
