They also check their grades, register for courses, and purchase textbooks. Oh, and they read, watch YouTube videos, listen to music and play Angry Birds.

To John Neff, staff development specialist at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills, Illinois, it’s because mobile devices open up a whole new way of learning for students who have grown up with them and will continue to use them in some form for the rest of their lives.
