One particularly useful feature is ‘PC availability’, which shows students which labs are free and how many computers are available, meaning students can always find a computer to work on.
The launch event was held in the college canteen with over 100 staff and students in attendance. The college was pleased to welcome Omani technology entrepreneur and Knowledge Oman founder Tariq al Barwani to give a short and inspiring speech about his work, before formally launching the app.
Barwani said, "As a businessman and educator in the technology sector, I am always pleased to see institutions using technology in innovative ways to enhance the experience of their stakeholders. MyMajan is a great example of this; I am sure that it will be extremely popular and beneficial to Majan's students.”
Ian McNaught, head of Library and Computing Services at Majan University College, said, "At Majan, we strive to use technology in the most effective way to support the student learning experience. MyMajan brings together data and resources from multiple existing student support systems and puts it into each student’s pocket. We are excited to see how this benefits students and look forward to developing more features in the near future.”
