WebEx session: "The Mobile Expectations of College-Bound Students" - for specifics, see www.noellevitz.com/mobile.

Notes from Nick Day:

The mobile expectations webcast from today included a whitepaper with their survey's findings. It covered both mobile access and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al) usage.

Some notes I took on the webcast are below:

- Slightly more than half of the people that responded had accessed schools' mobile sites. Android was in use slightly more than iOS devices, but they were very close.
- The vast majority (96%) had accessed them via mobile browsers, and not a specific "mobile app".

Of the social media stuff, which is probably more relevant to our marketing folks, it turns out that students highly used Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter (to a much lesser extent).. quel surprise, n'est pas? It covered social media in fair detail, as seen in the whitepaper.
