Mobile Learning efforts at UAA
With mobile devices ever-so available and abundant, mobile learning and teaching efforts are springing up to try to keep up with the technology. Compiled here are some resources and efforts available through UAA. If you have anything to add to this list, please email the FTC Design team.
Student Mobile Use and Learning Survey Results & Infographic
The ELearning work group conducted a mobile usage survey of students in the spring of 2011 and 2012. The survey was conducted to find out how UAA students are currently using mobile devices and what they would like to be able to use mobile devices for, if it was available to them. Because we had such a great response from students, IT services was able to use the information to make the decision to provide the Blackboard MobileLearn App.
We think this information will be very useful to our UAA community as well, so we wanted to share the key findings in an infographic comparing the two years of results. Check out the Student Mobile Use and Learning Infographic (pdf) of the survey results and consider how this information can guide teaching & learning practices.
