    Bring Your Own Device Policy - MSc Dissertation

    Hello,

    I'm currently studying for an MSc in technology management with the OU, and (thankfully) I'm approaching the end with the final dissertation. The title of the project is "Bring Your Own Device policy: What to include from a Technology Management perspective."

    As I'm sure you all know, BYOD is a growing trend (especially in the last 3-4 years) in ICT provision in businesses and educational establishments across the world. With BYOD, organisations are recognising that personal/consumer devices are increasingly prevalent and sophisticated. Some management of this is necessary to control risks to the organisation, and this is often done with a 'BYOD policy'.

    I'm currently preparing a survey to collect opinions from both IT professionals and end-users about what should be contained in a BYOD policy. Would it be OK to post a link here when I'm ready? I'd really value the opinions of Edugeek peeps.

    If anyone's interested in the topic, or has some wisdom they'd like to share outside the survey, that's fine with me!

    Thanks

    As deadlines start to loom I now need to carry out the survey:

    https://survey.slcs.ac.uk/byod

    You'll find an opinion survey which should be quick and easy to complete. It's completely anonymous and there are no restrictions on who can complete it.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi iom100 - I work in a special needs school, and this is becoming more of an issue for us as some pupils have devices that they use to interact and some have them as a reward. If you want any questions answered, pm me and ill answer as best I can

    Ah, but is it? An interesting question as to whether this is an issue with the specific technology of phones & ipads, or a more general security issue? I'll go along with whatever the Mods decide, but I'm just saying...

    Many thanks for those that have completed the survey so far. I'll try to provide a summary of the results when I've got a few more results and done the analysis.
