At MSUM, the desire to create an app came from the ground up. Members of the student senate brought it up about a year ago, said Chief Information Officer Dan Heckaman. The university then began working with Myriad Mobile. About 20-25 students participated in three meetings this past semester to brainstorm features. Students named which functions would be most useful to them: a campus map, dining hall menus, the academic calendar. They also wanted personal features: grades, class schedules and a list of courses they still need to take. Not all of the student suggestions will make it into the final version, Heckaman said, but they will be considered. Some might be added in later versions.
