These devices can serve most functions of a conventional notebook computer, but also have a range of additional capabilities, including image/audio/video recording, GPS location, compass, accelerometer, near-range radio (NFC and Bluetooth), and soon health and fitness monitors. “(Aditya, Bhattacharjee, Druschel, and Erdélyi, 2014, p. 49). “The location-based services (LBS), as a Mobile Internet application, include positioning for electronic maps and other such services.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
