How to Get the Most Out of Your Ashford App
One of the major shifts in higher education is how technology has changed the landscape. Ashford University embraces these technological advancements and provides high quality education services for our student body.
One of the ways that Ashford University enables students to take advantage of this technology is through the Ashford Mobile App. This free application for Android devices, iPhones, and tablets keeps our students connected to the online classroom wherever they may be. You can literally take your classroom with you anywhere you go.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the features of the Ashford University Mobile Application and how you can use it on your smartphone or tablet.
Access Your Classroom and Current Course
Ashford Mobile was designed for the modern college student. Gone are the days of having to sit in a classroom at a specific time and place. The Ashford University Mobile app allows students and faculty to access the online classroom through their smartphone or tablet.
Simply sign in with your online classroom user ID, and you’ll gain access to your current course and grade. You can also access important resources like the Writing Center, Library, and links to Ashford University’s social media sites.
Another way to access your current course is through the drop-down menu. There you’ll also find other resources such as University news and alerts, important contacts, past and future courses, and the help center.
Participate In Classroom Discussions
Once inside the course, you’ll see the discussions for the current week, instructor guidance, and any written assignment details. Simply select a discussion topic and view the initial responses from your classmates and professor. You also have the ability to post your initial response as well.
Being able to access your classroom and participate in online discussions through your device can allow you to be more efficient with your time. Now you can take care of your assignments while you’re on the go.
Connect With Classmates and Professors
Another great feature of the Ashford Mobile app is that it gives you instant access to your peers and instructors. The “Ask Your Instructor” feature lets you easily correspond with your instructor if you have questions, need help, or just want to say hello.
The “Ashford Café” feature is a digital hangout for students only. This area offers another great way to connect and collaborate with your peers in the online classroom, and it can be easily accessed with the touch of a button in the Ashford app.
Check Your Grades
As a college student, staying on top of your grades is a must. The Ashford Mobile app lets you not only view your overall grade in the class, but it also gives you access to your grades for each individual assignment.
In addition to being able to access each assignment, you can also read your instructor’s feedback. This feature gives you instant access to your professor’s guidance, and it helps you stay on top of your assignments throughout the duration of the course.
The Ashford Mobile app was built for the modern college student. You now have the ability to take control of your education and go to school when it’s convenient for you. Be sure to visit our Ashford Mobile page on our website to get a better idea of all the features that the app offers.
