DESCRIPTION

The need to meet the ever-growing expectations of our mobile-obsessed youth is critical, but crafting a mobile solution may seem like a daunting task. The reality is, by pulling together your resources on campus you can greatly simplify the process. In this presentation, Chris Greenough, Senior Director of Information Technology from Northern Arizona University, discusses how NAU Student Services and IT were able to work together to create an app that engages students throughout their entire lifecycle.
