The importance of mobile tech at universities in one chart
The "Mobility in Higher Education" CIO survey was conducted by the Education Dive editorial staff and is underwritten by Sprint Higher Education Solutions.
We wanted to see what approach universities are taking to the technology, so we asked 50 university CIOs how mobility and BYOD (bring your own device) have changed as a strategic priority over the last year.
Unsurprisingly, none of the university CIOs we surveyed thought mobility and BYOD had decreased in importance as a strategic priority over the past year. In fact, an overwhelming majority (74%) thought mobility and BYOD increased in importance. This trend reflects the increasing abundance of mobile tech being used on campuses.
Which area of this chart does your school fall into?
Increased importance — 74%
