Chapman University IS&T recently announced that they have partnered with Modo Labs to provide the technology framework for Chapman University’s official mobile app. By selecting Modo Labs as our mobile app framework, Chapman is joining some of the most recognizable names in American universities including Harvard, Princeton, Notre Dame, and NYU who are already using the Modo framework for their university apps.

The selection of Modo Labs brings to a close a multi-year effort to evaluate university and departmental needs for a mobile app. Chapman IS&T, in collaboration with Strategic Marketing, Chapman Alumni Board, and other administrative groups provided valuable input which lead to the selection of Modo Labs.

The Chapman mobile app is scheduled to be released later this year and will bring many of the features that are currently spread out across the Chapman website into one easy to use package at the tip of your fingers. Features scheduled to be included in the first version of the mobile app include:

  • Campus News
  • Event Calendar
  • Social Feeds
  • Campus Directory
  • Campus Maps

This is just a small sample of what is possible with the app. The Modo Labs framework will also allow Chapman to add additional modules and features incrementally, and will allow for seasonal events such as commencement and homecoming. Chapman IS&T will continue to provide information on additional features scheduled to be included in the first release. Be sure to like us on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest updates regarding the Chapman mobile app. Look for the app later this year for your Apple or Android device!
