STUDENT MOBILE WORKSPACES Transform the challenges of the mobile campus into new opportunities for learning. The wide variety of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other mobile devices used on campus by students and faculty create a significant opportunity for anytime, anywhere learning. 58% of students own THREE OR MORE mobile devices. 89% of students own a laptop Students say they VALUE TECHNOLOGY because it helps them achieve academic outcomes 76%, prepare for future educational plans 76%, and prepare for the workplace 61%. 76% of students own a smartphone 43% of students own a desktop computer Students also say that technology makes them feel MORE CONNECTED to their institution 64%, their professors 60%, and other students 53%. 31% But despite owning and valuing these devices, 74% of students say the use of smartphones in class is BANNED OR DISCOURAGED at their institution. 94% of students own a tablet 16% of students own an e-reader The challenge for colleges and universities is to bridge the gap between the expectations of campus users and the capabilities of the institution. of higher ed leaders agree that students today should be able to remotely access all the information, data and software they need, on any device, at any time, and with a consistent user experience. 38% 61% Some software simply cannot be used remotely No budget or staff to provide this level of service 12% But 55% Too difficult to adopt new major technology 21% Why? said their institution does not provide remote access to students. We don't have the expertise 34% We don't have the network infrastructure At most schools, a significant portion of students and faculty require access to resource-intensive software applications for CAD, statistical analysis, art, photography, etc. But users of these kinds of apps are typically tethered to traditional, institutionowned computers. How and where do users access these types of resource-intensive applications? INSTITUTION-OWNED COMPUTERS IN LABS, LIBRARIES, ETC. 54% PERSONAL COMPUTERS IN CERTAIN CAMPUS LOCATIONS TABLETS VIA WIFI SMARTPHONES VIA WIFI OR CELLULAR DATA NETWORK 36% The inability to easily access all software, including resource-intensive applications, from any personal computing device is frustrating to higher ed leaders, 97% 50 TO 60 PERCENT: 39% 15% MORE THAN 80 PERCENT: 9% 42% LESS THAN 50 PERCENT: 60 TO 80 PERCENT: 52% PERSONAL COMPUTERS ANYWHERE 89% What percentage of your students and faculty require access to resource-intensive, on-campus-only software? 6% of whom said it would be helpful to be able to provide all students and faculty with secure, seamless access to these applications anytime, anywhere and from any device or operating system.
