This article by Baiyun Chen and Aimee deNoyelles was published in the September 2013 issue of Educause Review Online, and the results were based on the 2012 Mobile/eTextbook survey at UCF. Here are the key takeaways from the article:
- A university-wide survey on students’ mobile learning practices showed that ownership of mobile devices is high among students and that tablets are the most popular devices for academic purposes.
- The survey also found that mobile learning typically occurs outside the classroom, with only limited guidance from instructors.
- To improve mobile learning effectiveness, students and instructors need help adopting more effective learning and teaching practices across content areas.
