Mohawk College and Hamilton-based startup Weever Apps have launched a web-based mobile app. The app, developed in part through Mohawk’s iDeaWorks program, will enable Mohawk students, employees and visitors with instant access at their fingertips to search programs and courses, streaming social feeds, events, photos, videos, and a GPS mapping feature.
“Our experience with Mohawk has been nothing short of phenomenal," says Tim Richard, VP Operations for Weever Apps. “With the college's practical approach to education, Weever Apps has been able to collaborate with students who possess knowledge beyond theory. The calibre of students involved in the Mohawk & FedDev relationship has allowed Weever Apps to tackle highly complex mobile app programming projects.”
“There’s no better way for students to gain 21st century skills than by collaborating with companies like Weever Apps,” says Pamela Hensley, Director of Research and Innovation at Mohawk. “Weever Apps is young, local, creative, and they’re toting disruptive technology. We want to be a resource to this kind of company.”
