Opening Keynote: Got Mobile, Got Data….Now What Do We Do?

John Rome, Arizona State University

Jordan D

9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Being present in the mobile world is becoming increasingly important, if not expected, for higher education institutions. Students carry their phones with them everywhere and want to be able to access information and individuals from anywhere. If universities can meet this need, they will be able to engage student in a new context and provide them an experience of easy access to information they are used to and require.

Recognizing the growing need for a mobile presence, Arizona State University (ASU) launched a mobile pilot of their student portal, My ASU in 2009. Many lessons were learned in this project which helped the University Technology Office (IT) research , design and eventually implement a “Mobile Framework” to address these needs. During this process, data was collected which provided valuable insight into the project, the various devices, native apps versus mobile optimized web apps, and of course, the consumers/students. This presentation will discuss ASU’s move into the mobile world and lessons learned.
