SUSU Online is official mobile application for students and administrative staff of South Ural State University. This mobile app is a module of the Unvieris Corporate Information Analytical System and has been developed at Computation Centre of SUSU’s Informatization Management Office.
Main functions of the App
- Navigation in class schedules of students and lecturers;
- Class schedule review offline;
- Class schedule editing;
- A widget displaying all classes for the nearest day of study;
- Map of academic buildings and dormitories.
At the moment, the App is available for Android OS phones (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.susu.univeris ). Mobile App for iOS is under development.
In the future, it is planned to implement a closer cooperation with personal profiles of employees, students and postgraduates, including introduction of an operative tech support. All of this will be possible due to the fact that this is no more a third-party development.
“There is no secret that smart phones are already becoming an inextricable part of our lives. They are use not only for calling but also for making purchases, performing bank transactions, acquiring various services, etc. Right now, the most important thing for users is a quick access to information. At the moment, mobile applications are more convenient and functional than websites, because they do not require entering a website address in a browser and can operate offline. The SUSU Online Application is being developed to allow university staff and student get a quick access to class schedules, university news and other informational services. Also in the future, we are planning to extend the App’s functions (surveys and other system services), and if users have some comments we will consider them,” says Deputy Head of SUSU’s Informatization Management Office, Maksim Nesterov.
