MSW@USC students are no strangers to technology since the USC School of Social Work has taken to the Internet and uses advanced web-based platforms and tools to make earning a Master of Social Work degree online a dynamic experience. Which is why we are so excited to announce the MSW@USC iPhone/iPad application!
Now you can swipe and tap your way through the Virtual Academic Center. Accessing the MSW@USC learning management system via mobile browser was always possible, but this application makes the most of Apple’s touch-screen technology.
The new mobile app offers plenty of features, but don’t take our word for it. If you’re a current MSW@USC student with an iPhone or iPad, you can download the app from iTunes and try it out for yourself.
Here’s a snapshot of what you can do:
View course materials on the go.
You can spend more time outdoors – and away from your computer – by taking course content
with you. Whether that means lounging on the beach or sitting in a park, remember to take your iPhone or iPad with you, and leave the laptop at home.
Download videos. For the multimedia-starved student, the MSW@USC application delivers asynchronous content to the palm of your hand with fast loading times for even longer videos.
Network with professors and peers.
It’s easier than ever to post on a classmate’s wall and send emails. One of the greatest benefits of earning an MSW degree
through the Virtual Academic Center is interacting with students from all over the country – whether that means participating in a group discussion for class or joining a special-interest social community.
Receive notifications. Now you can get instant alerts that will keep you informed on the go – whether it’s notice of upcoming live sessions or assignment due dates.
Take notes. You can jot down reminders about an upcoming assignment or something you want to discuss in class. The content you post on your device seamlessly transfers to the web the next time you log in to the Virtual Academic Center from your browser.
This is just a sample of what the new MSW@USC app can do. Take it for a test drive yourself, and let us know what you think!
