Since OWU’s chief information officer spearheaded the launch of the OWU Mobile app this spring, he and his staff have developed additional versions of the free application that allows mobile devices to connect with the campus from anywhere in the world.
Along with the original iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad apps, OWU Mobile now is available for Android, iOS, Blackberry, and all internet-capable telephones, Rellinger says. To date, more than 750 people have downloaded the app.
Rellinger also has worked with OWU administrator Kimberlie Goldsberry to add a “Dean of Students” feed to OWU Mobile’s news module.
Currently, OWU Mobile features 12 modules providing access to the University’s course catalog, library holdings, events calendar, campus map, athletics news, alumni portal, giving information, and more.
Rellinger also has created a mobile app for Main Street Delaware, a 501(c)(3) organization that seeks to preserve and promote the city’s historic downtown. He created this app as part of an internship linked to efforts to earn his doctorate of education in leadership studies at Bowling Green State University.
Since its summer launch, 169 people have downloaded the free Main Street Delaware app, which provides mobile access to news, weather, events information, coupons, photos, and a directory of area shops and restaurants.
“The ability to access information on mobile devices is quickly becoming an expectation,” Rellinger says. “OWU and Main Street Delaware have decided to be on the leading edge of this technology, and I am happy to be a part of the effort.”
To download the OWU Mobile or Main Street Delaware apps, visit the Apple iTunes App Store, Android Market, or Blackberry AppWorld.
