22 Aug Use App Hosting to Reach Students with an OWL or Other Lab
One way of getting students to take advanApp hosting can be a useful tool for colleges and universities. Major universities are jumping on the bandwagon of engaging students through technology. tage of a college’s tutoring services is to make them accessible online, which is exactly what the Online Writing Lab does. Your university can take the OWL a step further and make it accessible to students, anywhere they are, by creating an OWL app and having CyberLinkASP app hosting services handle the hardware side of running the app.
With the versatile form of app hosting provided by CyberLinkASP, your school’s IT team can create an OWL app, or a similarly-styled app, to provide tutoring in other subjects, such as math or biology. Creating a tutoring app for each of the core curriculum fields would be very useful. The Owl app, or each of the other tutoring apps, can be created for one specific platform (to figure out the most popular smart phones and tablet devices among students, the school could run a survey), and then the professional technicians at CyberLinkASP can take that individual software, vendor-produced app (isv published app) and format it to fit all available platforms.
By having your app hosted and configured for you, it will leave the hardware customer service and operating issues to the experts, while you are then free to focus on maintaining the app itself. Also, only having to create one app per subject, instead of several, saves time and money in the creation process, as well as in the maintenance process. In addition to formatting and customer service features, the isv-published app-hosting service is run through top-of-the-line hardware and software that allows the IT professionals to have new users running the app within minutes of downloading, and the 24/7 service means that even the student who waited until 2 am, to finish their assignment before an 8 am class, can download the app and get the help they need.
