An E-Expectations trend study

More and more prospective students are using their smartphones to visit campus Web sites, interact through social media channels, watch videos, and more. But what do these students expect when they are browsing college mobile Web sites and social media pages?

  • How many students browse college sites via mobile devices, and which smartphone/tablet platforms they use
  • How satisfied students are with college mobile sites
  • What content they value most when browsing on their smartphones
  • What social media they access on mobile devices
  • How much value students place on Facebook pages for colleges and univeristies
