A study conducted by the online studying platform, StudyBlue, surveyed 1,000 students about their study habits and the effect mobile devices have had on their learning, and the top five takeaways were posted by eCampus news.

With students owing an average of seven mobile devices, and spending almost four hours each day using their laptops, tablets, or smartphones, it is not surprising that studying has changed accordingly.

1. Students collaborate to improve their grades
Students can now work together by using collaborative study apps on their mobile devices, and 90 per cent of those surveyed believed this helped improve their grades.

2. Students Still Cram     
Students still procrastinate when it comes to studying, with nearly 60 percent saying they put off studing until the last minute and rarely study for study for small quizzes, and mobile devices help them cram.

A study conducted by Wakefield Research and CourseSmart found that 53 percent of respondents would be more likely to complete a reading assignment in time if it were available on their mobile device, and 89 percent have used their mobile device to study for an exam at the last minute.

3. Students use both pen and paper, as well as technology
Although on the average, students use pen and paper during 43 percent of their studying time, they also use mobile devices, with laptop use accounting for 26 percent of studying time. Additionally, smartphones are used 14 percent of the time, and tablets 12 percent of the time.

4. Students turn idle time into study time
The flexibility and mobility of smartphones and tablets is allowing students to study all over place. Almost a quarter of students said they study during idle time at work or school on their smartphones. Additionally, about 20 percent of respondents said they use their smartphones to study while commuting, 13 percent while eating, five percent while exercising, and 10 percent even admitted to studying while in the bathroom.

5. Students still study in bed

While it has been common for students to study or read assignments in the comfort of their bed, digital content and the internet are now available in the palm of their hands. With this flexibility, 22 percent of students are now using smartphones to read and study in bed.
