New Features in iShark Mobile

Issue Date: 06-17-2016

We are excited to announce new features to iShark Mobile - Personas, Orientation, and Push notifications!

Personas enables us to create a personalized experience for specific events or audiences. When launching the app initially after the recent update everyone will see the Welcome to NSU page. Click on settings to choose your Persona. Here you will see two options to select from “New Students” or “Students, Faculty, Staff”.


The New Student Persona is for incoming students attending orientation.  Using this persona will provide students with information to prepare before orientation, see the orientation schedule, and learn about the available resources at NSU. Additionally, there is a section with information tailored to parents of the students.


The Students, Faculty, Staff persona will give you access to all that iShark mobile has to offer from campus dining, shark shuttle, Blackboard, athletics, and NSU events. Check out the most common features of this app in this tutorial!


Push Notifications are available so that you can receive messages that will keep you up to date on all of the important iShark updates!
