A couple of weeks ago, it was discovered that some apps in the iOS app store had been infected by a virus called XcodeGhost. Information Technology Services has discovered some infected iOS devices (iPhone, iPad) on the K-State network. As these devices are identified, their access to the K-State wireless network is being blocked. If your IOS device has been blocked, go to the IT Help Desk in 214 Hale Library so that they can assist you in cleaning your device and requesting the network block be removed.

This is a Q&A with Andy Bennett, professor, Department of Mathematics.
What will your presentation for the Teaching, Learning, and Technology Showcase titled “Going Mobile: Developing Mobile Apps” cover?
I will discuss how to set up online materials that are mobile-friendly so that students can use them whether using traditional computers or mobile devices.

Most of this will be usable for materials listed on a website, but tools are available to then wrap such materials into an actual “app.”
