Funding to participate in the Mobile Apps Experience Project Extended – Submit Application by June 5, 2015

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

The NN/LM MCR has learned from past mobile device projects that the cost of apps is a major barrier to accessing and experimenting with for-fee apps that might improve work performance or efficiencies vs. the free versions of for-fee apps or just focusing on free apps.

To address this issue, we would like to offer qualifying full Network members either a $50 iTunes or $50 GooglePlay purchase card in exchange for sharing what was learned about the app by filling out the Mobile App Evaluation Form.

1. Currently work at a NN/LM MCR Full Network member institution.

4. Submit your reports by the following four deadlines on at least 1 app per report – July 2015, October 2015, January 2016, April 15, 2016.
