From shuttle bus schedules to student tips — it’s the new Concordia app!
This fall, students have a new tool at their disposal to access timely and useful information. The Concordia app, designed to enhance your university experience, is now available for download.
Get your schedule and grades instantly, consult campus maps, track the shuttle bus to plan your trips between campuses, connect with the library, and figure out what to eat and where. And that’s just the start.
“We’re putting all the essential information at our students’ fingertips,” says Sami Antaki, executive director at University Communications Services.
“We want to enhance the student experience at Concordia — and this version of the app is only phase one. Our team is actively listening to feedback to make sure that we find the best ways to provide them with timely, and even personalized, information. So look for that part in one of the next phases…”
The refining process
Almost 200 students tested the app during orientation. The exercise provided its developers with important feedback that was then integrated into the latest version you can now download.
User feedback regarding functionality will be key to ensuring the app continues to meet the needs of the student community, as will suggestions on future components.
