The majority of students say that technology makes learning more fun, it helps them study more efficiently and they prefer it over traditional textbooks. Experts say mobile technology cultivates greater engagement in today’s classrooms, enables easier contextual learning outside of the classroom, and gives many students the opportunity to develop and practice important technology skills.
Industry data proves that mobile technologies are here to stay. Since students are using these devices to consume information, universities must respond and develop strategies that include mobile devices. Websites that are optimized for mobile devices, customized mobile applications, and location-based services can be developed into a strategic advantage for universities. Mobile is the future for content delivery. Colleges and universities need to establish a strategy now and make the decisions necessary to take advantage of this communication opportunity
