Exploring Students’ Mobile Learning Practices in Higher Education

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.
