The CDM COL Player is an iOS app specifically designed for the Apple iOS devices. The application allows CDM students to download and view their COL lectures on their iOS devices. It can display all the same screens as the desktop players, such as the video from the lecture, the whiteboards, and the lecturer’s computer screen. The lecture is downloaded on the iOS devices and is viewable offline. The new version supports AirPlay playback.
1. Compatible with iOS 9.0

App has gone way downhill
This used to be a solid and simple app, lacking in features it should have had but doing the job for distance learning students. Instead of seeing it get better by doing obvious things like improving the scrubbing to allow one to easily rewind and fast forward, integrating Evernote or Dropbox or something so that we can actually export notes (why would I use notes if I then have to painstakingly copy and paste them into Evernote later?), or allow more full screen displays, the app has now hit buggy level. I literally have to delete the app and reinstall it every SINGLE week just so a new lecture will appear. Think about that for a moment. Someone needs to get on this and take care of this issue because distance students are dependent on this app to get their education.
Great App for Distance Learning
This is a solid app for viewing COL-enabled courses on the iPad. Lectures can be downloaded to your iPad and are viewable offline. I end up catching up on lectures during train commutes. As for the actual app, you can easily toggle between the screen, video, and whiteboard. The notes functionality is good for toggling back to an important section of the lecture. My only gripe with this app is the lack of forward/backward scanning. If you want to rewind a few seconds, it's difficult to do because you have to move the slider on the time bar. Inevitably, you end up backing up too far. Overall great app for distance learning!
A great step in the right direction...
This App is a great step in the right direction for DePaul. It's no surprise that CDM makes leaps ahead of the rest of the University. With that said, the app is very glitchy. I have a 1st Generation iPad and the app constantly crashes and loses my notes. It almost makes note taking useless. I would also recommend building in the capability of saving where the user last left off. I have to leave notes of when I last left off, and usually said notes get mysteriously deleted. The UI is a little boring. I might advise going to a black glossy background. The white makes it very difficult to look at for long periods of time when sitting in dim or no lighting.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
