Liberty University goes mobile
Thanks to portable devices like smartphones and tablet computers, individuals have access to the internet no matter where they are. In fact, a 2011 infographic from Microsoft Tag stated that by 2014, more people will access the web via smartphones than through desktop computers. One Christian university is very aware of the important role mobile technology plays in students’ lives.
Liberty University recently announced on its website that it has introduced Liberty Today, its new mobile app. This program is compatible with a variety of mobile operating systems, including Apple and Android, and will connect students with the latest news from the Christian university.
“The mobile app was created to deliver the day-by-day news and updates in the way that most people are getting information today,” said Ron Kennedy, the university’s senior vice president of marketing, as quoted by the website. “Liberty Today will help us share this excitement with the Liberty family on campus and all over the world.”
Among the types of information mobile users will be able to access are news straight from the university, as well as the latest updates regarding Liberty sports. In addition, those who have downloaded the app can watch church services, commencement ceremonies and other videos related to campus life.
