  •  Mobile SCU native apps published

    Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013

    The Mobile SCU web application has been published as a native app for iOS and Android devices. The app is available now to install from the iTunes and Google Play app stores.


  •  Reunions mobile site

    Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2010

    The Alumni association developed a set of informational pages for the recent Grand Reunion weekend, which included event schedules, faqs, campus map, shuttle and parking information.  Providing this information on SCU Mobile is an added convenience for event attendees, and a similar approach would be recommended for other large-scale multi-day events on campus.

  •  Room Reservations added

    Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2010

    SCU faculty, staff and students can now make room reservations in the Learning Commons & Library and in Lucas Hall using SCU Mobile.  This had previously only provided a view of current availability - that's still provided, but is extended to allow you to reserve an available room using your mobile device.

  •  Webcams added

    Friday, Jul. 23, 2010

    The two campus webcam views, in the Mission Gardens and the Benson Fountain, are now available in the mobile site.  Look for 'SCU Webcams' in the News section.  Mobile visitors to the standard webcam page will be presented with the option to switch to the mobile view.

  •  Career Center BroncoTrak Job Listings

    Tuesday, Jun. 8, 2010

    The mobile site now includes student job listings posted in the Career Center's BroncoTrak system.

  •  Event Calendar design update

    Friday, Apr. 30, 2010

    The mobile event calendar has been updated to allow users to view events beyond the current day - there are options to advance the daily view forward by day, view a summary of the next 90 days, or view the calendar by calendar month.

  •  Redirecting mobile users from

    Friday, Apr. 16, 2010

    We're trying something new in the main site - if someone accesses the standard SCU site using a mobile device (limited to devices that use Javascript), we're displaying a small dialog box that offers to redirect the visitor to the equivalent content on the mobile site.  This is now in place for the SCU home page, press releases, course catalog, directory, campus map, library room reservations, and a few other pages.

    If the visitor selects the mobile version, we save that preference in the client's browser (for two weeks).  The visitor can switch back to the standard version of the mobile site's content by following a "view standard Web page" link.

  •  Updates to mobile course catalog

    Monday, Apr. 5, 2010

    We've added a couple of things to the mobile site's course catalog section.  The class location text in the class detail view is now linked to the mobile campus map.  And a new subcategory has been added to the Catalog section for the SCU Summer Program.  This includes an overview of the program, schedule, and lists of classes offered in the various sessions.

  •  Room Reservations

    Monday, Feb. 22, 2010

    We're working on another new feature for the mobile site; a list of rooms available to reserve for meetings in the new library.  Initially this may not offer the ability to actually reserve a room, but will show what's available at the moment.

  •  Mobile Courseavail Search

    Monday, Feb. 8, 2010

    A search form has been added to the Catalog section of the mobile site.  This  search form is similar to the "quick search" in Courseavail - you can enter a partial text string, a 5-digit class number, a subject code, or subject and course number, along with a selected term to access course offerings and seats remaining for specific classes.
