Rave Wireless has added Flashcards and Lectures to the suite of academic tools within its mobile phone solution, Campus.
Working with Cengage Learning, Rave Wireless has helped Montclair State University in New Jersey be the first institution to use the new mobile applications that are designed to improve student learning outcomes, advancement and retention.
Rave Flashcards allow instructors or students to create sets of flashcards for viewing on the mobile phone. These mobile flashcards make an ideal study tool for the many on-the-go moments throughout a student’s day, such as riding the bus or a short break between classes – times when it may not be practical to carry or boot up a laptop computer.
Rave Lectures enables a university to stream recorded audio or video files to a student’s cell phone. The portability and ubiquity of the cell phone makes it ideal for viewing short video clips as a study tool. Rave Lectures can serve content recorded by any video capture system, allowing the institution to leverage its existing technology investments and allowing instructors to mobile-enable class media without changing their existing recording techniques. Rave Lectures can also stream to cell phones video content provided by major publishers.
