Interested in looking through the various educational apps developed by OU or recommended by departments on campus? Visit OU’s new Mobile Plaza website.

After hearing that it was difficult for students, faculty and staff to find recommended apps, OU IT worked with several departments to compile the apps for OU’s new Mobile Plaza website. Mobile Plaza is essentially a gallery of applications that we suggest students, faculty and staff download to provide a richer experience both inside and out of the classroom. Additionally, the OU community is able to recommend apps through an online form on the site.

Currently the website includes the official OU apps, general recommended apps and the form for recommending apps but our goal is to add several more pages in the coming months including:

  • Develop Apps page – Information for students about ways to get involved in developing apps here on campus
  • Departmental pages – A space for faculty to provide applications specific to their disciplines that they would suggest their students download
  • OU Student Apps page – Applications that OU students have built
