Mobile: Letting Go of the Device and Building for Innovation
Davis, Jim; Rocchio, Rosemary A.
EDUCAUSE Review, v46 n2 p40-42, 44 Mar-Apr 2011
Mobile use of the Internet is on target to surpass fixed use by 2014. Three-fourths of all college/university students have purchased or intend to purchase an Internet-enabled handheld device within the next year. The smartphone market is changing almost monthly. Attempting to manage even just one or a few "devices" is becoming a lost cause. In the case of mobile, the authors have focused on a device-agnostic framework that stipulates only that the mobile device be web-enabled. This device-agnostic framework and approach has huge practical advantages in that they can reach the vast majority of their mobile community regardless of what device they are using and they can readily accommodate ever-changing devices.
