New MOX app techs out campus


(Diablo Valley College, Department of Information Technology)

DVC has a new app for smartphones, called the Mox App, designed to make administrative interaction and registration with DVC more accessible.

According to Contra Costa Community College District Director of Information Technology, Satish Warrier, the new app will allow users to access important phone numbers, view campus maps, receive notifications, and view their class schedules.

The Contacts function allows browsing and searching contact information for student, faculty and staff as well as the numbers for important campus services.

While one cannot search specific classrooms, users can find department buildings using a similar interface to Google Maps with pins indicating where the building is located.

The campus map allows new students to easily find their classes and according to Warrier, a “You are Here” feature exclusive to iPhones shows the student’s current location on the map.

The Class Schedule feature provides all the information one would receive through WebAdvisor or InSite Portal on a computer. In the class schedule section one can click on a desired class to view more information about the course.

Mox App has been available for free on iPad, iPhone, Android OS phones and select BlackBerry phones since late November, 2011.
