Colorado Springs, Colo. – 2.8.19 – Colorado Technical University (CTU) was recognized for the CTU Faculty App – an instructor-based mobile application – at the WCET Annual Meeting in Portland, Ore.
Attended by CTU Chief Academic Officer and Provost, Dr. Connie Johnson, the WCET 30th Annual Meeting brought together higher education thinkers and leaders interested in advanced technology and innovative learning.
Dr. Johnson accepted the WOW Award on the University’s behalf and spoke about the successes and challenges of launching mobile technology for faculty:
"We are honored to be recognized by WCET for our implementation of the CTU Faculty App that was strongly influenced by our faculty feedback. We thank our colleagues at WCET for our third outstanding work award. This important peer recognition continues to inspire and motivate CTU academics."
CTU received a similar WOW Award in 2016 for CTU Mobile – the University’s student-facing application – designed to help students stay connected to their classes anytime, anywhere.

CTU President, Andrew H. Hurst, reflected on the most recent award and the University’s continual use of technology:
A key priority for CTU is our investment in innovative technology. The CTU Faculty App enables our instructors to better access their courses and thus improve the overall student experience.
President Hurst continued,
Mobile apps, in particular, also allow us to provide a more engaging and personal education experience to both students and faculty.
