The effort currently includes three projects aimed at supporting student and faculty activities across the University's many campuses. Among these projects is the Learning Portfolio, a service that will help students store and access their academic materials.

Bringing state-of-the-art technology to these buildings can be a challenging prospect. The projects often have to use creative problem solving to be able to install modern technology in very old structures, as they recently did at NYU's Academic Center in Prague, Czech Republic.

This virtual object that appears on the playing surface (sports scores during a TV match is another example) is, in fact, augmented reality in action. But the use of augmented reality (also known as AR) isn't just limited to the world of sports. Augmented reality is used every day to insert digital and virtual information into your real-world environment.

Through OrgSync, students can log in and browse clubs and organizations categorically or by events.

For NYU’s student developers, however, writing code is not always the most challenging part; it is getting access to the large amount of data that a successful app requires. NYU is working to make some data available to student developers to encourage innovation.
