Introduction

You can listen to an audio track or watch a video on your mobile device, such as a smartphone. This is great for when you find something you want to study later or share with a friend not at the University via your mobile device.

The video or audio will be available to you for 48 hours without requiring you to login.

ASP for Your Mobile Device

Wherever you see the “send to mobile” icon you are able to obtain a shortlink to enable playback on your mobile device. Look for this symbol:

Send to mobile logo

Once you click on that icon, you will see the following window:

Send to mobile window

As you can see, ASP provides many ways to send this shortlink to your device:

1.) ASP can send a shortlink as a text SMS message to your smart phone or send the shortlink to your email address for you to pick up on your device.
2.) You can enter a shortlink directly into your mobile device's web browser.
3.) You can also have your device read a special barcode, or QR-Code, directly from your computer screen. To do this you will need to download a QR Reader from the App store on your mobile device.
