Pasadena City College has announced the launch of PCC Mobile, a free mobile campus application that brings college life to the iPhone and iOS-based mobile devices. The application offers mobile access to campus maps, the schedule of classes, event calendars, the latest news, sports schedules, and more. It even has a directory that lets students email or call professors and classmates. Students may also access distance education course through the Blackboard Learn component in PCC Mobile.
Students, faculty, and staff can download the application for free through the Apple App Store. An app for Android and BlackBerry devices will soon be available as well. The app is expected to be popular with prospective students, parents, alumni and other members of the university community.
"We want to offer our students and other members of our community the best in technology and access, and that means making PCC services and information available to mobile users," said Leslie Tirapelle PCC interim Director of Distance Education.
