What is the Smart, Healthy Communities Initiative?
Smart, Healthy Communities is an interdisciplinary initiative based at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, comprised of specialists in science, computing, design, and humanities. Together, we’re working to realize the promise of the information age: not just better tools, but a better world.
What is Rokwire?
The Smart, Health Communities Initiative has developed an open-source mobile software platform called Rokwire (https://rokwire.illinois.edu/) that integrates diverse streams of data and sensor information to present user-personalized results, while significantly reducing mobile app development time. This platform turns overwhelming amounts of local information into personal, meaningful experiences, re-centering data that exists in communities to the people who live within them.
Rokwire enables communities to integrate their digital resources and deliver them when and where they
are most useful. Mobile apps built on Rokwire are customized for specific communities and purposes.
What is the Illinois App?
Illinois app, the official campus app of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, is the only university all-campus app built on an open source platform. The Illinois app integrates multiple digital campus services and delivers them on mobile. Students find their dining hall menu and ordering, laundry, campus cash, campus ID, bus pass, events, wellness and athletics, maps, course schedule, grades, reminders of deadlines, and more, all in one app that is always at ready access. And more services are being added all the time.
