CalUFusion

 

Description

The CalUFusion App is part of CalUFusion - an initiative of the California University of Pennsylvania.

Students are now able to download the “CalUFusion” App and immediately have access to all of the CalUFusion iPhone applications. All applications are downloaded as a package to keep everything tied together. This way, when new applications or upgrades are available, they will all be right there in one location and you will not have to search for the other apps. They will be sent as updates as they become available.

The first version of CalUFusion has the following three sub-apps:

1. Campus Navigator

This app will help you find your way around campus. You can search for buildings around campus by both name and abbreviation. The Campus Navigator Application is great for both new students and returning students who are unsure of an abbreviation on their syllabus. It can be used just to look up buildings, to find exactly where you are on campus, or to get directions to an unfamiliar place.

2. Food Order

The food order app is for those hungry students who do not want to wait in a line to order and then pick up their food. With this app, you can look up menus of places on campus, and then place an order and pay using your PayPal account. You can select a pick up time, and the food would be ready for pick up at the store you ordered it from. A ticket displayed on the iPhone screen would be used to identify the student picking up the food item.

3. Emergency Button

The emergency button app is a mobile “911” button. You have to click the button two times in succession to set off the alarm. The campus police will be notified of the your location and they will rush to your aid. The app includes a secret passcode feature. A secret passcode can be used to deactivate the alarm if you feel you are safe and no longer need the authorities, or it could be used if the alarm was activated by mistake. (Note: A valid CalU email address is needed to use this app)

CalU Fusion: A Thought Piece

Fusion (noun) – the merger or a blending of two or more things such as materials or ideas.

Fusion (nuclear) – the process in which light atoms such as those of hydrogen and deuterium combine and form heavier atoms, releasing a great amount of energy, which primarily manifests itself in the form of heat. Fusion is the power source of the stars and the Sun and, as such, is essential to all living things.

Technology (noun) – the study, development, and application of devices, machines, and techniques for productive practices.

Teaching (noun) – the imparting of knowledge or skill by instruction or example.

CalU Fusion is the blending of technology with teaching to advance and enhance learning.

Advance (verb) – to move somebody or something forward in position.

Enhance (verb) – to improve or add to the strength, worth, beauty, or other desirable quality of something.

CalU Fusion

The Means: The blending of technology with teaching will be a means by which California University will use the study, development and applications of devices, machines, and techniques for the productive practice of teaching, i.e., imparting knowledge and skill to our students by instruction or example.

The Ends: The main purpose of Cal Fusion is twofold and has both quantitative and qualitative aspects: 1) to advance the quantity of our students’ learning, and 2) to improve or to add to the strength, worth, beauty or other desirable qualities* of their learning.

*By making learning interactive, fun, exciting and rewarding, we can help achieve one of the major goals of the California University Mission Statement: “To instill not just learning but the love of learning.”
