Text messaging is one of the main reasons students have been switching their computing and communication needs over to their phones. According to Hanley’s research, 97 percent of the students he surveyed used text messaging as their main form of communication. This important fact emphasis the value proposition for universities and colleges to invest in student centered technology such as Student Q or Guest Text, higher education waiting line management systems that integrates SMS text messaging and LCD displays to create virtual waiting lines so students don’t have to stand in long lines.
A study performed at Ball State University found that 99.8 percent of college students now have some kind of cell phone, and that smart phones are accounting for more of their electronic and computing needs than ever before.
The study was conducted by Michael Hanley, director of Ball State’s Institute for Mobile Media Research. Hanley began the study in 2005, and examined the phone usage of 5,500 students over the course of 11 surveys. To read the the study click here.
