New Mobile App Now Available For CommunityPosted November 19, 2020 at 8:58 am
Pennsylvania Highlands Community College is proud to announce the launch of the myPEAK mobile app for students, faculty, and staff. The app is available for free download through both the Apple and Google Play stores, and it will help the college community stay connected and informed on their devices.
“We began exploring the need for a mobile app a few years ago and are really pleased to have partnered with Jenzabar, a higher education digital engagement platform, for this service,” said Matt Hoffman, Chief Information Officer at Penn Highlands Community College. “In this era of COVID-19, when we cannot build and sustain our community in the usual ways, tools like this app can be very useful to help boost engagement and keep everyone connected.”
Hoffman stated that the mobile app (accessible from Apple/iOS and Android devices) will make access to college-related information and people incredibly quick and easy.
The myPEAK mobile app provides quick and convenient access to student services, email, student learning system, and the self-service portal for class registration, grades, bill payments, and more.
Additionally, push notifications allow administrators to communicate important news and announcements (like weather-related closings) to everyone with the app in real time.
“It is a very robust app,” Hoffman continued. “In the coming months, we plan to continually optimize it while encouraging the college community to use it for news, updates, and basic student service portal functions.”
