The University of Saskatchewan is pleased to launch a brand new version of iUsask—now available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
The new iUsask is designed with an integrated, user-centred interface that will allow students to get more information, more quickly and easily than ever before, with subsequent releases. Its architecture facilitates the rapid deployment of content, allowing the university to offer a wider range of mobile services for the U of S community as new demands emerge, over the next few months. For this release, we are most interested in trying out the new architecture, with a focus on presentation of Class information for current students.
The new iUsask contains some new features e.g. the ability to find out available seats at various Computer Labs on campus. It also contains more personalized information such as, recommended text books for courses that you are enrolled in, your PAWS announcements and access to your electronic Bulletin Board postings. Over time, you can look forward to receiving more personalized content from PAWS on your hand held devices. The new app also allows greater customization.
We are excited about our new approach. The new iUsask is currently available for iOS and Android devices.
In the Me section, you can access your PAWS announcements and PAWS bulletins on the go, as well as Class information such as your schedule, grades and final exams.
