Welcome to Brandon & Tyler's Senior Project Homepage


We have been chosen by the CIO of Virginia Wesleyan College to research and develop a mobile application for Virginia Wesleyan College powered by Ellucican Mobile. This project is meant to go along with the Portal that is being developed for the college at this moment. The goal is first conduct research on mobile applications for colleges. This was done by reading up on an annual study conducted by EDUCAUSE as well as a study conducted by former Dean of Virginia Union U. that stated 76% of high school students were using mobile devices in the classroom already. This showed that the upcoming freshmen at the college are already accustomed to using their mobile device therefore, we should provide them with something in college as well to help their transition be as smooth as possible. This information was presented to the Presidential Cabinet and they endorsed our project. As of now, our sponsors of the project are Robert Leitgeb, CIO of Virginia Wesleyan College and Mort Gamble, Vice President of Advancement. Below are links to our project scope and two powerpoints that were presented to the cabinet as well as department heads.
