Birzeit University Launches Student Mobile Phone Application

On September 10, 2014, Birzeit University launched a mobile phone application that will serve as a communication tool for the university community, providing students with quick access to university news and other information of interest related to courses, grades, class schedules and study plans.

Registrar Khaled Al-Tukhman said that the application is a turning point in students’ relationship with the university, and that now the student will be able to follow-up on his/her study plan and keep pace with technical changes and methods of social networking.

The application was developed by the computer center staff at the university, with the principles of user-friendliness and access to information. Chief software developer Mohammad Tmaizi explained that, despite the accuracy of the information provided by the program, it does not fully replace the information available on the university's academic and administrative portal "Ritaj."
