Apps: Organized and Informed

Annotated apps used on mobile devices related to student success in higher education.

What is the Cloud?

Cloud Computing (also known as on-demand computing) is when, instead of saving your files to a specific computer or USB drive, your files are saved to an internet based application. This means that as long as you have an internet connection, you can access your files from any device! Cloud-based applications are a great way to keep your academic work and resources organized. 

Looking for ways to access your information over a variety of devices? These apps allow you to read articles, upload documents, and listen to podcasts, wherever you are. 

Save your files and access them anywhere!
