What are we doing?
In early 2021, we have updated AAU Student App with a brand new design. The app will constantly be expanded with more features to suit the new design. AAU Student is available in the App Store and Google Play.
In 2021, we are also working on an expansion of the Feel Good universe in the AAU Student App. The idea behind the app is to give students a good tool in their everyday life that can be taken anywhere. The Feel Good universe contains several tools that can help students get an overview of their everyday life. The expansion of the Feel Good universe is expected to be released in 2021.
We also continue the work with AAU Connect, which helps creating a relationship and knowledge collaboration between AAU, alumni and other interested parties. In 2021, we focus on a Podcast feature in which the user can play podcasts from AAU. In addition, we will improve the collaboration opportunities in the app, and make it easier to start a collaboration with AAU.
The app is already available in the App Store and Google Play, and is constantly being expanded with more features.
Furthermore, we are working on the project Projektbørs, which will help initiate project collaboration between students and companies. Projektbørs is expected to be integrated into AAU Student and AAU Connect, in order to be able to address both target groups directly. Right now we are working on the prototypes and storytelling.
Finally, we are also working on an extension to AAU Guide, which will embrace the fact that the target group can put together its own education to explore its possibilities. We also work with the implementation of access requirements directly in the app for the user to investigate educational opportunities further.
