Mobile Tech Transforms Higher Education: 5 key trends to watch

An open journal article that discusses mobile trends to watch in higher education.

"Walk onto any campus and it’s clear that college students are “early adopters” and “power users” of mobile technology. This places extensive demands and expectations on college IT leaders as well as faculty and administrators. Students and teachers increasingly expect to use mobile devices to access all matter of applications, resources and communication services as part of their daily lives."

“Practically every one of our students—rich and poor, wise and less wise—is walking around with a powerful computing device in their hands. These students are changing the nature of their education using those devices, whether they realize it or not—and whether we help them or not.” —Therese Mageau, Campus Technology
