Whether you’re traveling, at work, attending an IEEE conference, or without your computer, the free IEEE Collabratec mobile app will keep you connected with more than 78,000 technology professionals who are using IEEE’s online professional networking and collaboration platform.
The mobile app makes these IEEE Collabratec features available anywhere you go:
- View posts and comments from your network, communities, and private groups.
- Post, comment, ask questions, and share activities in your newsfeed.
- Connect and network with other IEEE Collabratec participants.
- Create, upload, and view documents in your library.
- Message your network directly.
- Receive real-time notifications on activities.
“The messaging feature allows me to keep up to date with what’s happening in my private groups as they work to develop white papers and blogs,” says IEEE Member Jared Bielby. A consultant in the field of digital culture, he is the manager of IEEE’s Collabratec Internet Technology Policy community.
Developed as a partnership between the IEEE Collabratec development team and the IEEE Mobile Center of Excellence, the app is one of three IEEE has launched in the past six months. The IEEE Event Finder mobile app lets you search for an event not only by its name but also by city, state, or province; by IEEE region, section, or chapter; or by the IEEE society or council sponsoring it. IEEE Open Engineer lets you post pictures and 30-second videos from your smartphone or tablet onto a media-sharing platform where others may view and comment on them.
