We’re excited to announce our partnership with Asahi Net International (formerly rSmart) to help bring intuitive and integrated mobile apps to Sakai schools.
“We were hearing from a number of schools in the Sakai community about the need for an integrated mobile app solution,” said Orla Mester, Vice President of Sakai Operations and Services. “Dub Labs clearly stood out as offering the most robust platform, had existing Sakai integrations and included the ability for schools to mobilize and integrate other systems on campus.”
Asahi Net International will be meeting its client’s needs on mobile app solution by reselling the Dub Labs platform to their higher ed clients while working with Dub Labs on new features and improvements to the Sakai integration.
“Asahi Net International brings a world of knowledge and experience in the higher ed space and on the Sakai platform,” said Chris Hopkinson, Director of Business Development for Dub Labs. “Combining our mobile background with their Sakai expertise is a great fit for both companies and the Sakai community.”

The Windows 8 operating system is a game changer in higher ed for two reasons:
1) Apps developed on Windows 8 can be used across all Windows 8 devices, phones, tablets and PCs. That means you can use the exact same Angry Birds, Bank of America or your school’s mobile app on your Windows 8 PC, tablet and phone.
2) Windows 8 was developed for a generation of students growing up on touch screen devices, apps and tablets. Lap/desktops are being passed over for smaller, more functional tablets with highly intuitive apps.
Students today would prefer everything be touch, on an app and more portable. Windows 8 has made that a reality in a very compelling way across all their devices.
We’re extremely excited to announce our partnership with Microsoft and will be the first higher ed mobile solution to offer apps for Windows 8 tablets and PCs beginning in June.
