ACU accelerated its mobile learning research through a contribution from AT "Mobility is changing education," says Dr. Scott Hamm, coordinator of mobile learning research for ACU's Adams Center for Teaching and Learning. "I think we are moving from an 'anytime, anywhere' environment to an 'all the time, everywhere' environment for learning."In a world of search engines, social networking, smartphones and converged mobile devices, students have access to more information than one could process in a lifetime, Abilene Christian University launched a mobile learning initiative, Connected, in 2008. The initiative trains students to not merely consume these vast amounts of information, but to assess information, to synthesize thoughts, to generate new ideas, and to contribute meaningfully to conversations of global importance. ACU is committed to exploring how these technologies can be used to help people learn in new ways and discovering how these tools can aid us in its mission to educate students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world. More than 4,500 students, including nearly 800 graduate students, enroll in ACU from 47 states and territories, and 41 nations.

ACU also found the iPad to provide increased access and engagement for students, and preliminary reports demonstrate high levels of satisfaction. Graduate students in an ACU online education program reported a 95 percent satisfaction rate using the iPad to accomplish their online coursework, citing convenience and the device's range of features. The tablet also provided ease of use in conducting research and activities that promote higher order thinking. A study of first generation college students from traditionally underrepresented demographics found that when undergraduates used the iPad to access social networks, they expanded their academic support communities. These findings are compatible with what ACU announced in June 2011: Three quarters of college freshmen surveyed said they would be willing to personally purchase an iPad if at least half of their textbooks were available digitally.

Dr. Cynthia Powell, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry, is hard at work on her three year mobile enhanced inquiry based learning (MEIBL) study, which received Next Generation Learning Challenges funding. Dr. Powell joins researchers at two institutions to further explore mobility's impact in teaching in the natural sciences.

In a highly controlled scientific study, ACU students who used an iPad to annotate text performed at a rate 25 percent higher on questions regarding transfer of information than their counterparts who used only paper. A study of student iPad usage patterns is currently underway, conducted by Dr. Ian Shepherd, associate professor of management sciences, and Dr. Brent Reeves, associate professor of management sciences and computer science. This project will expand on what Dr. Shepherd and Dr. Reeves found in ACU's first all digital class in the 2010 11 school year: The iPad promotes both efficient use of time and more learning moments.
