[prMac.com] Newport Beach, California - Live On Campus today is pleased to announce Live On Campus 1.1 for iOS, an update to their Education app that provides highlights of campuses worldwide. The app is a fast, fun, futuristic campus media tool through which users can access a tool called The Wire, allowing them to scan through videos, images, tweets, and articles from their favorite campus. The interface is designed to work across the web, iPad, and iPhone, enabling users to easily share their favorite items. Bringing campus living to life, The Wire is now live and provides a unique experience and insight into college content from more than 15,000 campuses.
Most people choose one college, but are always curious about life at other schools. Live On Campus allows a person to indulge their curiosity and live vicariously through the content from other colleges. Live On Campus envisions bringing the world a little closer by helping everyone discover the diversity of campuses around the world.
Uniquely, The Wire allows the user to see a stream of content from any campus in the world almost instantly. Each stream includes videos, images, tweets, Facebook updates, and other interesting content related to a university. Students can create their own streams and compare them with their friends. All of this information can easily be filtered so users only see content of interest as well as a history of everything viewed.
Both a novelty and an intriguing lifelong fascination, people often describe college as being in a bubble, where students only really know what is happening on their own, individual campus. The Wire is able to burst that bubble, creating an ideal method for high school students thinking about college to see what their future college life might look like. It also allows current college students to tune into the highlights of campus life at the schools of their friend's, as well as other campuses. It provides alumni a glimpse of life on campus as they remember it and helps parents get a glimpse of what today's students are talking and thinking about.
The Wire truly comes alive on the iPad and iPhone, and is also available via the web. The experience is fun, fast, and immediately absorbing. The streams of content are vibrant and beg to be explored. The iPhone version makes The Wire very portable, allowing a user to easily share their Wire discoveries.
Following free registration, users set up a personal Live On Campus page that provides access to the Wire they create. Your Wire is a collection of personal content a user finds interesting at Live On Campus, from various visited colleges, as well as other sites on the web. This personalized Wire is viewable on all technology devices, so folks can recall and share their content anytime.
