When installing Mobile Learn on an Android device, every user must allow the app a set of permissions. Below is a list of these permissions, and what the app actually does with each. Please keep in mind that we do not have any control over the wording of these permissions: Google has created the wording of each permission category. Some categories are made intentionally broad by Google, but may therefore be misleading. Please read below for more information.
Allows users to download/upload attachments for forums, blogs, journals, etc.
Allows for the creation and removal of application shortcuts on the device's home screens.
Allows for push notifications to the device.
Necessary in order to communicate with your institution's server and load data from the internet.
Allows users to save their Learn login credentials for future use.
Your social information
When using the Mobile Learn Roster tool, this permission allows the app to search the device's Contacts list to find any matches between the Roster and your Contacts. Mobile Learn does NOT read your device's call log, it will only read your contacts if you decide to search for them through the Roster.
