Make the most out of your NOAC experience by staying updated with the Spark leaderboard, the campus map, conference articles and everything you need to know about scheduling, all in one app! The new NOAC 2015 app is available in the Google Play store and the App Store and is compatible with most smartphones and tablets free of charge.
As a conference participant, you can view your individual schedule, events, handouts, digital resources, videos, PowerPoints and much more! If you’re on the go and need to view your Spark progress, the NOAC 2015 app has you covered with its real-time “Leaderboard” feature. The “My Spark” section is in real-time. Offload your Spark only once a day, on a computer or at one of the information booths throughout the MSU campus.
Articles created for the Arrowman Press Corps, the Current and the Ripple will all be included under the “Articles” feature of the app. Getting lost is not an issue with help from the color-coded campus map feature and our Scout-like sixth sense. To make NOAC’s Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts more accessible, press their label in the app.
Connor Desmond and Bryan Melonis, longtime friends, developed the conference app based on a similar system that they encountered on a ski trip together.
“It’s a great way to make the most out of their NOAC experience by keeping in touch with the conference program and their Spark progress” said Desmond.
