Bevill State Community College recently unveiled its new mobile app. The BSCC App was designed to make information more accessible and available to its students and the general public.
The BSCC App can be downloaded from both the Apple Store and Google Play. Some of the apps features include a college activity calendar; direct access to registration information, class details and student email; maps of the College’s campuses; links to Bevill State’s social media; and access to an employee directory.
“The app was created with our students’ needs in mind, but it will also be beneficial to anyone who wants to be more connected to Bevill State. It was our goal to design a tool that created a greater link to information while making it easier for our students, potential students, and the general public to have better access to the College,” explained Dr. Chris Franklin, director of Public Relations for Bevill State.
According to recent research, mobile device users prefer using both mobile apps and a mobile browser. Franklin said that was another factor in developing the app, recognizing that it is a necessary tool in today’s world. He added that the app is meant to complement the College’s website, social media, and other informational tools.
“We are very excited about the possibilities the new app will bring our students,” said BSCC President Dr. Larry Ferguson. “One of our major initiatives at Bevill State is to enhance the overall student experience. The new BSCC App is another step in that direction.”
To download the new app on a mobile device, search for “Bevill State Community College” in the Apple Store and on Google Play. There is no cost to download the app.
“The app was designed to be very user-friendly, but because it is new, a video tutorial was created to help people navigate through the many features of the app,” said Dr. Franklin. The tutorial can be accessed on Bevill State’s YouTube Page - www.youtube.com/bevillstatecc.
The new app was developed by OCV Apps, an Alabama based developer of multi-platform mobile applications.
