About

About the project that started this app.

‘Student Academic Partnership collaboration project to improve Student Digital Experience at Staffordshire University.’ The scheme provides an opportunity for individual or teams of students to work alongside academic or service staff to complete a digital project for the benefit of the student community at Staffordshire University

The Staffs Pathway project was inspired by applications like Pokemon Go, and aims to make navigating the campus efficient, logical, and consistent. The idea is a mobile application which will utilise augmented reality to give users a virtual map on their phones. As well as this, it will also denote nearby car parks, toilets, and catering facilities, with the hope of further expansions in the future.
