With students now being able to access all campus events, and information on their BlackBerry and Android devices, we expect higher student participation and a stronger campus environment.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 11, 2010
The Ryerson Commerce Society (RCS) at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University, is proud to have become one of the first Canadian business school councils to launch a new and innovative mobile application that provides students with instant access to campus information from their smart phones.
Annette Lawrence, Vice President of Administration and Operations, RCS, Ryerson University, is thrilled with the CampusCurrent technology now available to all RCS students. “Most students are utilizing smartphone technology and have very busy schedules,” says Lawrence, “with students now being able to access all campus events, and information in this medium, on their schedules, we expect higher student participation and a stronger campus environment.”
After downloading the free application, each commerce student will be able to instantly access campus events, academic dates, phone directory and news on their BlackBerry and Android Devices (with Apple devices soon to follow).
This is a new mobile application to Canada, one which will be utilized by various post-secondary schools across Ontario in the coming months, thanks to the strategic sponsorship and alliance with the Certified General Accountants of Ontario (CGA Ontario) (http://www.cga-ontario.org) and the CampusCurrent (http://www.mycampuscurrent.com) Mobile Platform.
“CGA Ontario is a proud sponsor of this exciting new mobile application,” said Bruce Richards, vice-president, business development, Certified General Accountants of Ontario. “Productivity and efficiency help students to do more with their careers; by supporting this smart phone initiative the Association can help students manage their busy schedules and heavy workloads to maximize their own productivity and efficiency.”
