Mobile CTools: Students Develop U-M App for CTools

A team of primarily CS and CE students has created the Mobile CTools application for iOS and Android, and has sold the app to U-M Information and Technology Services (ITS) so that it may be released as an official University app. CTools is a U-M resource that allows faculty and students to access and update course information, assignments, grades, and more. ITS is chartered to provide technology and communications services for U-M and has a unit devoted to mobile.

According to student developer Apoorva Bansal, "Mobile CTools allows for quick, clean, and easy access to CTools pages from iOS and Android mobile devices with a focus on a user-friendly UI and intuitive navigation controls. The application provides users with a set of frequently used tools for each of their CTools sites including resources, announcements, and assignments."

The team that created Mobile CTools is known as the MSuite Student Collaborative, and is based in the Computer Science and Engineering division of the EECS department at the University of Michigan's College of Engineering. Team members include:

iOS Team:
Apoorva Bansal - Mechanical Engineering/Computer Engineering
Daniel Jonik - Computer Engineering
Matthew Viscomi - Computer Science

Android Team:
Nader Jawad - Computer Science
Yousuf Jukaku - Computer Science
Stephen Wald - Computer Science
