Mobile Student Information System
Asif, Muhammad; Krogstie, John
Campus-Wide Information Systems, v28 n1 p5-15 2011
Purpose: A mobile student information system (MSIS) based on mobile computing and context-aware application concepts can provide more user-centric information services to students. The purpose of this paper is to describe a system for providing relevant information to students on a mobile platform. Design/methodology/approach: The research followed a design science approach, including surveys to argue for the relevance of the system and evaluation of different versions of the system using a mobile system acceptance model (MSAM). Findings: It was found that the intention to use such services is high, in particular relative to services providing information based on localization and the personal schedule and interests of the student. Originality/value: Several mobile systems exist that provide generic campus information for students and this paper describes one of the few systems of this sort of personalization which have been evaluated.
