English abstract

This paper is an outcome of the survey carried out among the students of Utkal University to determine the usage patterns of smartphones for their academic pursuits. The authors distributed a total of 250 questionnaires and received back 215 at a response rate of 86%. Though the students expressed that they use smartphones for both general purposes as well as academic purposes, 90% of them indicated that smartphones help to store course materials for easy access and also to check email. The study recommends that the University should promote the use of smartphones in teaching and learning at different levels and should periodically develop a standardized training program to encourage its use.
