Students at Tompkins Cortland Community College (commonly known as TC3) in upstate New York can use mobile phones to check their grades and course schedules, sign up for text alerts about class cancellations, and view a campus weather cam. They can even view their debit card account balances--all courtesy of the TC3 Mobile portal. The students at the Dryden, New York, campus may not realize it, but the introduction of the TC3 Mobile portal can largely be attributed to the fact that their director of campus technology is an avid snowmobiler. Colleges and universities across the country are making great strides in developing innovative ways to use mobile devices in the classroom (as clickers and for instant surveys) and for student collaboration. This article presents some schools which are taking a closer look at their web portals to see which administrative features make sense to optimize for mobile access.
