Imagination Corridor

  • OIT and Sciences IT are partnering on the development of a proof-of-concept for a mobile app that utilizes Internet of Things (IoT) technology. When someone is using the application and approaches a location with an IoT beacon, the app will provide contextual information about the physical environment, such as the research that is being done in a building or its history.
  • Long-term plans are ambitious and include integrating data from many sources such as Peoplesoft SIS to provide real-time information that is relevant to the user. Learn more about the Imagination Corridor at
