With little information and supporting evidence on student ownership and usage of mobile devices at the University of Sheffield, making decisions on our services and support for mobile devices has been based, to a large extent, on assumptions. A survey was commissioned in order to determine factual information on mobile devices to enable future decisions to be more evidence based.
The results act not only as a benchmark for us to track future trends within mobile ownership and usage but they also highlight a number of areas where we can implement changes to improve the services and support we currently offer.
The results of the survey can now be downloaded from the CiCS website using the link below:
