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.

As such, institutions can maximize learning (and therefore teaching effectiveness) by developing and supporting this medium.
