Colorado Technical University Online Launches CTUMobile™
CTU Online’s Mobile Learning Initiative
Brings the College Campus to a Cell Phone Near You
Colorado Springs, CO – October 8, 2007 – Colorado Technical University’s Online campus, a
well known degree-granting institution, announced the launch of CTUMobile – an easy-to-use
mobile learning channel that delivers elements of Colorado Tech’s online educational programs
via web-enabled cell phones and other wireless devices. CTUMobile, an extension of Colorado
Tech’s highly successful virtual campus – CTU Online – brings the classroom directly to mobile
phones and other PDAs and personalizes the education experience to an even greater degree.
CTUMobile works with most cell phones, and is at its most exciting when combined with Apple’s
stunning new iPhone. While the topic of mobile learning has generated a great deal of interest in
online education circles for quite a while, it is the latest iteration of cell phones and other mobile
hardware that allowed Colorado Tech to take its mobile learning platform to the next level.
CTUMobile includes two important capabilities – a live access technology that allows students
to access school-related information such as class assignments, instructor directories, campus
email, and grades, as well as a video technology that makes it easy to download and view video
courseware and podcasts. Combined, the features add up to a “college-on-the-run” experience.
CTUMobile-equipped students will now be able to conveniently access CTU’s successful virtual
campus while away from their computers. It’s also more than cool. The new learning technology,
combined with a device with the panache of Apple’s new iPhone, is all about portable education,
and it’s all about style.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our students, and it demonstrates our ability to operate at the
leading edge of education delivery systems,” said Dr Wallace Pond, Chancellor of CTU Online.
