Mobile Learning

Technology is becoming more mobile, which provides access on the go with our busy lives. Reynolds offers several learning applications to facilitate access on mobile devices. These applications will help to keep you connected and allow your learning journey to continue across time and location.

VCCS Mobile is your gateway to college services and information. This app is available for Android and iOS (Apple) mobile devices. Download it from your app store and select your college. You can navigate between VCCS colleges if you attend more than one. VCCS Mobile will give you access to course listings, the student information system (SIS), academic and events calendars, library, campus directory, and a map to campus. It even provides quick access to emergency numbers for each campus. It is a mobile tool box that you can keep in your hand.

Blackboard Mobile Learn provides mobile access to your courses on our Blackboard learning management system (LMS). Using Mobile Learn, you can accomplish much of your classwork on the go while hanging out or in transit (not while driving). Download it from the app store for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and webOS mobile devices.

Blackboard Collaborate Mobile is your tool for mobile Web conferencing. Several academic programs at Reynolds use Collaborate for synchronous class meetings. With the Collaborate Mobile app, you can join these meetings from your iPhone, iPad, or Android device (including Kindle Fire). A number of professors use Collaborate for online office hours so you can make a quick connection while you are waiting, shopping, or traveling (but not driving). Download this from your app store and be ready to collaborate.

With the growth of mobile applications and devices, additional ways of connecting will be available in the future. Check back on this page to find out the latest mobile opportunities for learners at Reynolds.
