Abstract

Increasingly students spend a considerable amount of time online. Technological advances over the last few years have meant dramatic increases in the use of various technologies such as personal mobile devices, agent-based technologies, and advances in pervasive/ubiquitous computing. Social networking has led to enormous changes in the way students use the same technologies for both academic works and personal use. Recent advances in mobile technology, especially smartphones, with facilities such as Cameras, GPS tracking, and sensors has allowed constant access to the Web for many users. The widespread use of apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Instagram and many other specialized tools has also impacted on user experiences in this area. The smartphone is now a powerful personal computing device providing access to interactive services wherever you happen to be and the device of choice for many students.
