V-State Mobile TV Interview

by Rachel on June 30, 2014 in Initiatives, Spotlight

Sterlin Sanders, assistant director of TSS, conducted televised news interviews spotlighting V-State Mobile and its approach towards integrating mobile technology with communication between faculty, staff, and students. In the two news segments aired on June 26, Sterlin estimated approximately 400 downloads since the app’s launch.

He expects the number of downloads to rise in the fall as more students arrive on campus. The TV interviews also show large support for V-State Mobile by members of the VSU community who find the app convenient and helpful. Great job Sterlin and all those involved in developing the app!

Watch the TV News Interviews on WCTV TV and WALB News!
