Mobile devices have almost literally taken over the college landscape and it’s changed how students live and consequently learn as well. E-learning owes much of its growth and success to the smartphone, tablet and other mobile devices that students carry with them today. In fact, some predict that the global market for mobile-learning will reach upwards of $37.8 Billion by 2020.
Students today are mobile and want to learn that way; by 2019 nearly 50 percent of all college and university students will be enrolled in online classes.
But it doesn’t just stop at how students are learning, e-learning and online classes are changing the overall college environment too.
