A Set of Mobile Applications to Support the Education Process

Information and Telecommunications Technologies in Education

This paper describes a set of mobile applications that support the education process. The set includes applications for attendance monitoring, academic performance monitoring, schedule management, classroom interaction, final grading, education materials access and individual homework management. All these applications rely on the mobile device management (MDM) system. The MDM system provides a common authentication service and mobile software distribution. Applications use and modify the data from relevant corporate information systems. As each university has its own set of custom information systems, the MDM system also provides the common interface to these services. A set of applications is connected to the information system via an adapter program.
