Rural U, the University of Maine at Fort Kent's early college and dual enrollment program, has launched a free mobile app for use by its students and high school partners. The app, designed over the last year by Sephone Interactive Media of Bangor, is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. The app will allow Rural U staff to do push notifications about important dates and processes that will appear on student and partner calendars and to send documents and training materials to Rural U students throughout the State of Maine that they can access on their mobile phones and tablets. The app also provides opportunities for Rural U students to have a little fun and “brag” about their participation in the program. Students will be able to take selfies, decorate them with college related digital designs, and post them to a new Rural U Facebook page.
