As demand for mobile technology in higher education increases, there is parallel pressure to manage and control mobile security, infrastructure and content delivery. uMobile introduces a higher-education focused platform for delivering authenticated, personalized content to mobile devices. Core features enable integration with campus directories, calendars, and learning management systems, as well as provide useful mobile tools such as maps.
Backed by Jasig and a group of university sponsors, uMobile is built on top of well-tested integration libraries and benefits from a long history of community collaboration. The use of web-based technology allows universities to work in a familiar development environment, while open APIs (Application Programming Interface) and standards-based implementations enable integration with diverse university data sources. Role-based content distribution allows universities to target diverse communities such as students, staff, visitors, and alumni with relevant content.
