U of Texas campus builds CBE from mobile up - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

The University of Texas’s Institute for Transformational Learning has created an all-digital, biomedical sciences competency-based degree program, designed for iPad through the Total Educational Experience, or TEx, program. Campus Technology reports that the decision to use iPads came from timing — it started developing the program, which launched at its Rio Grande Valley campus, in November of 2014 — and connectivity, as some students in the target population did not have reliable cell service. The CBE program pulled technology support from multiple vendors, including Salesforce and Canvas, and developers have focused on constant improvement, with plans to release a version for all mobile devices through a Web app next year. http://www.educationdive.com/news/u-of-texas-campus-builds-cbe-from-mobile-up/410515/
