This is a follow-up to previous communication on the Open LMS Mobile App.  We wanted to inform you that a new Open LMS Mobile App has been released to the Android and IOS app stores. Open LMS has fixed the known bugs in the Open LMS Mobile App related to Google Authentication and Apple device access, including compatibility with iOS 14.4. Read more about it here.

Therefore, we invite all who are using the now called "old Open LMS App" to move to the "new Open LMS App" in order to keep up to date with the Mobile App releases and use the free push notifications feature. The older App will only be available until the 28th of April.  So make sure you switch over before then.

If you are using a browser to access COA's MyCourses on your device and not using the Open LMS Mobile App, this change will not impact you.
