"The importance and prevalence of text messaging is certainly undeniable. This 2008 study placed the monthly volume at over 75 billion. But where does it fit into academia? This Spring 2011 study, 'Using Text-Messaging in the Secondary Classroom', conducted by two professors at Bellarmine University, found text-messaging to be beneficial for increasing course-related interaction. Students liked the versatility that mobile phones and text-messaging provide, enabling them to access course materials and communicate with peers and teachers while riding on the bus, waiting to be picked up, or during other ‘down’ time."
"The Internet has made researching subjects deceptively effortless for students — or so it may seem to them at first. Truth is, students who haven’t been taught the skills to conduct good research will invariably come up short."

"Instructors are discovering the benefit of using videos as part of their instructional strategy to enrich the process of learning... The online classroom could benefit the most from the interactive nature of videos when they are designed for and created by students. With the availability of free software and relative ease of making a video, it is time for a video literacy revolution among students."
"University students should already know how to use Microsoft Word and Powerpoint. The real gains are in being taught programming, says Martin Paul Eve. In recent days, several sources, primarily in the US, have suggested that all undergraduates should be taught computer programming. Right-thinking institutions will see the sense in this suggestion, but it may be hard to implement at the departmental level within the UK system that does not operate on a major/minor system."
