Dynamic paywalls and access control

  • A new startup, Cala, is aiming to create Classpass for access to academic journals at a single affordable price. 

  • Penn State University has launched a new mobile app which provides single sign-on access to the learning management system, e-mail, shuttle bus tracking, campus maps, grades, class schedules, tuition bills, library services. These apps may become very powerful gatekeepers to all academic services in the future.
