RPP #96 Terribly Clever Blackboard Mobile: Interview with Aaron Wasserman

  • Interview: Aaron Wasserman, Director, Blackboard Mobile
    • Aaron is one of the founding members of Terriblyclever Design. Terriblyclever worked with Stanford to conceptualize iStanford, a suite of iPhone, Blackberry, and mobile web applications for fellow students. In 2009 they were acquired by Blackboard and Aaron now leads the new Blackboard Mobile division. We'll try to answer the questions:
      • what is Blackboard Mobile?
      • which platforms are supported?
      • what are the benefits to an institution?
      • why is a native app better than a web app?
      • can you customize apps for your platform?
      • what’s on the future road-map for Bb Mobile?
  • Podsafe music selection from Music Alley
    • "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Blake Morgan. His licensed cover of the Paul McCartney classic has topped the charts on the iTunes Music Store.
