Deputy Programme Manager for Information and Communication Technology (ICT), at the CARICOM Secretariat, Jennifer Britton, says the development of applications such as the recently launched CXC Connect, is critical to the CARICOM Single ICT space.
Speaking at the recent launch of the CXC application, Britton said the Single ICT Space was one of the initiatives undertaken by the CARICOM Secretariat, which linked strongly to the launch and utility of CXC Connect.
The app, the first mobile application of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) — a CARICOM Institution — has a newsfeed, which pulls content from CXC social media spaces with push notifications for specific messages.
With the app, students, parents and teachers can use their mobile devices to check examination results, which will be available in August.
There is also a chat feature that appears in five discussion categories and connects users to a CXC agent. Other features of the app include a frequently asked questions library, new subject releases.
CXC Connect is designed for Android and iOS devices, including mobile phones and tablets, and can be downloaded from the Apple Store and the Google Play Store.
