SMS Researcher (Internet Usage Project)

The SMS Researcher was created to help with a study being conducted in the Department of Pediatrics at UW-Madison to gather data on perceived use of the internet, sleep patterns, mental health, college adjustment, and other areas.


Learning Solutions helped with development of a web application research tool that allows the configuration, deployment, and data collection of week-long survey campaigns through experience sampling. The tool sends text messages to participants at various times to respond to a pre-determined set of questions in the survey.


Learning Solutions worked with Lauren Jelenchick, Megan A. Moreno, and Sandon G. Jurowski from the Department of Pediatrics.
