Short version: Help #highered, Take this short survey today

Everybody wants to know how big mobile has become for higher ed, but there is no data available.

And, YOU can help us find out by answering a few questions today.

I need at least 60 more replies to my research survey to be able to compare results with last year’s study.

So, please complete this survey now!

You will help the higher ed community AND make sure you don’t miss the report to be published at the beginning of March.

Long version: This is why you should take this survey today

What is the current state of the mobile and responsive web in higher education?

Is higher education there yet when it comes to supporting mobile and other connected devices?

vey on the State of Mobile WebSince 2011 I’ve run a yearly survey on the state of the mobile web in higher ed to find out where our industry stands (here is last year’s report)

Whether or not your institution has a mobile or responsive web presence, please take the survey as I’m trying to assess the big picture.

The survey includes a few questions about your institution as well as questions about your mobile solutions (or plans), strategy, budget, tools, vendors, budgets as well as lessons learned.

If you’re in charge of the mobile web at your institution, it should take you between 3 and 6 minutes to fill out (25 questions).

How has mobile traffic evolved on higher ed websites for the past 2 years?

This year I’ve also introduced 2 important (but optional) questions to allow us to benchmark the evolution of mobile and tablet traffic on higher ed websites.

You will need to have access to your Google Analytics account to be able to retrieve this data using the default segments for mobile and tablet traffic.

In this 2-min screencast, I’m showing you how to do this if you’ve never done it.

Please take the time to complete this important survey now.

It will close on February 15 (today), 2013, but you’d better do it now so you don’t forget (that happens to me all the time :-)

Sharing is caring — please let your network know about this survey

I need your help to spread the word about this research (hey, you can just use the social button on the right side of this post).

Whether you blog, tweet, facebook, linkedin with/for higher ed folks, you can help let the higher ed community know about this survey. The more data I’ll be able to collect the more interesting the insights I’ll be able to share :-) So, thank you very much for any help you can provide.
