DrexelOne Mobile

DrexelOne Mobile is a free app that lets to users access personal, academic, financial, and career information from phones running Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. It's already been downloaded over 60,000 times!

While the focus of the app is on providing quick information to the students, faculty, and professional staff at Drexel, it's usable by everyone interested in Drexel campus maps, a directory, local merchants and menus, shuttle bus information, Dragon athletics, and general campus news and events. 


How do I get DrexelOne Mobile?

Use the links to get the right app for your type of phone and scroll down to see which features are supported on your platform. Our goals are a native look and feel with broad feature parity while exploiting platform-specific features where useful.


Does DrexelOne Mobile do email?

DrexelOne Mobile is for smartphones and those already have really good built-in email apps. To help you, we made instructions for using those with your Drexel email account. Links to those instructions are built in to the apps (look in Settings) or you can find them here on AskDrexel.

Does DrexelOne Mobile work with Blackboard?

As a dashboard, the app shows course announcements, events, and gradebook entries; faculty also can see some student activity tracking data from the Photo Class List area. To get the most from Learn 9 while on the go, you should install the Blackboard Learn Mobile app, for which Drexel has purchased an "Institutional License" so that the app is free to you. You can learn more about the app and find appstore links (for Android and iOS) at the Blackboard Learn Mobile web page.

What if I have ideas for new functions?

Then you shouldn't keep them to yourself! Visit our suggestions website to let us know what you're thinking. Be sure to look to see if someone else already had a similar idea; if so, throw some of your votes behind that idea to help it achieve critical mass and add a comment to explain your unique twist on it.

The suggestions website is the chief way that IRT prioritized user suggestions for new functions. You can expect that we'll typically respond within a day of your suggestions, that we'll ask follow-up questions to get a better understanding of what you seek, and that we may engage you in a "great debate" about why your idea would have benefit to many people and why a mobile phone is the right place for such a feature. Together, we can vet the idea and decide how to handle it.
