Orchestrating a major technology conference is a daunting challenge for even the most seasoned professional. Organizing the inaugural Innovation and Technology Summit sponsored by OIT made the stakes even higher.
The OIT Mobile Applications team developed an event app for the Innovation & Technology Summit held on May 18, 2016. The app was so well received by the attendees, it is already in high demand for other campus events. JSOM will be the first to use the app for their Project Management Symposium this August. Other groups interested in using the app include the University Events, Development and Alumni Relations, Admissions, Marketing, ECS, and Research. The app is available for iOS and Android phones and tablets.
The team is currently working with Student Affairs and the Student Senate to develop a mobile app for UT Dallas. The proposed modules include News, Transportation, Dining, Maps, Calendar, Directory, Emergency, Library, Campus services, and Building Services. The modules have been prioritized and we are defining the requirements. Both CS and ATEC students have expressed interest in working on the app.
