Report: Students Prefer College App's Academic Features

July 19, 2017

A report by DubLabs, a provider of personalized campus mobile applications, said that a majority of the students the company surveyed use their campus mobile app to stay on top of assignments, and that learners preferred the app's academic features over its social elements. When asked to rate the importance of each feature, respondents cited:

  • Academics, including assignments, course discussion and grades (79 percent)
  • Mobile alerts about grades and assignments (72 percent)
  • Email access (63 percent)
  • Communications with professors, staff and classmates (60 percent)

The Student Life and Technology survey of 500 U.S. students at two- and four-year colleges was conducted in the spring. For more information about the survey, click here.
