Simpalm Develops and Launches College Social Networking App for Virginia-Based Startup

MyCollege Connect is a mobile app designed to easily connect college students with fellow students and faculty members. It was envisioned by a Virginia startup, College Connect LLC, which hired Simpalm, a leading app development company in DC. The MyCollege Connect app enables students to discover and connect with faculty and students in shared and similar courses and programs. Once connected, students and faculty can easily share chat sessions, event information, news, assignment deadlines, files, and other information and resources.

MyCollege Connect isn’t simply a social tool, it is a competitive edge for students who are keenly interested in knowing without delay the latest information about assignment requirements, deadlines, test dates, resources, and essential planning details. Students can link their MyCollege Connect account to a college or specific school, broadening or narrowing their community network.

How Does It Work?

MyCollege Connect is a feature-rich platform with a built-in chat platform, discussions forum, and status-notification display. Students can use the app to share and respond to status posts, questions, invitations, and discussion items. Planned attendance of classes, program activities, and events can be tracked and recorded. A Class Feed makes it easy to share files and resources with fellow students and faculty members.

Important Features For Students and Faculty members:

  • Ability to discover and connect with students in similar courses and programs.

  • Ability to post status and comment on the statuses of fellow students.

  • Access to Class Feed for latest news and information about deadlines, test dates, project requirements, activities and meetings.

  • Initiate one-to-one chat with fellow students and faculty members to ask questions, share alerts, or discuss problems.

  • Receive alerts from built-in push-notification capabilities.

  • Create student profile and link it to college networking community.

  • Add and manage events through built-in calendar.

  • Communicate programs and classes you are joining or attending; find who else will be joining you.
