March 6th, 2012

JICS Go extends the reach of your JICS portal beyond the desktop or laptop browser and into the hands of the mobile user, providing your mobile device users with access to your JICS server. By using a mobile device such as cell phones and tablets, your end users can access the content on JICS from anywhere, at any time by going to https://my.lacollege.edu/go on their mobile device. Students will be able to access coursework information in the eRacer® learning management system with just a few taps on their mobile device.

JICS Go has a completely new user interface specifically designed to meet the needs of mobile device users. Special attention was paid to the usage patterns of the mobile user.

JICS Go supports many of the JICS base portlets and most of the e-Racer portlets for students. Supported devices include Apple® iOS devices (iPhone®, iPod Touch® and iPad®), Google Android™ devices, and Blackberry® v6.0 phones.
