The "Mobility in Higher Education" CIO survey was conducted by the Education Dive editorial staff and is underwritten by Sprint Higher Education Solutions.
Smartphones and tablets can be found all over university campuses in dorm rooms, classrooms and offices. Having iPhones, Android phones and various netbooks can be great for students and tech-savvy teachers looking to optimize their daily work, but they can also mean challenges for campus IT departments.
"Bring your own device" (BYOD) policies are a hot topic in university IT departments across the country right now. The first step toward implementing a BYOD policy, however, is drafting one. In Education Dive's 2013 "Mobility in Higher Education" survey, we checked with 50 higher education CIOs about where their institutions are at on the road to dealing with BYOD conditions.
We asked all of them to give us a yes or no response to the question "Does your university have an official BYOD policy?" This is how they replied:
No — 76%%
