Connecting the Dots 2020 - Pre-COVID-19 vs. Post-COVID-19 App Usage

Technology is everywhere on campus, both inside and outside the classroom. During COVID-19, apps that enable contactless transactions — from payments to dining — have become more popular as schools look for ways to keep students safe on and off campus. Based on the majority of students’ survey responses, these changes are meeting or exceeding their expectations.

Connecting the Dots 2020, our first annual survey of students’ digital preferences, is packed with valuable insights into students' tech usage and preferences.

The 2020 TouchNet Student Research Project gathered data from an eight-minute, online survey and utilized accepted standards of statistical practice. Respondents were required to be smartphone owners 18 or older enrolled at a U.S. college or university and not employed in a competitive industry. TouchNet will repeat the survey annually for our clients’ benefit.
