Today, students rely on smartphones as their key social connector and a preferred learning tool. According to the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research 2010 Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology (Smith, Caruso & Kim), over 85% of students have an Internet-capable handheld device and use it either daily, weekly or several times a week to access the Internet. That’s no surprise given the penetration of handheld computing devices or tablet devices like the Apple iPad® at the higher education level.
Today institutions can reach and engage students through the devices they rely on by utilizing Blackboard solutions:
Smartphones are a way of life for students today. Hundreds of institutions across the globe are leveraging Blackboard to bridge the gap between the way students live and the way they learn. They are improving efficiencies across their campuses, engaging more students, creating excitement for their brand, and building a better education experience for everyone.
