Abstract: Since 2011, The Limerick Institute of Technology (School of Applied Science Engineering & Technology) has actively engaged in a course of research to determine if SMS can be used to (1) increase student’s preparation for class, (2) increase their motivational levels towards learning and (3) to assist with memory retention. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the concept of the technology and to summarise the academic arguments that have been made both for and against the use of such technology for teaching and learning activities in higher education. A full quantitate and qualitative analysis of the research will take place in 2014. The project forms part of a school wide Scholarship of Teaching & Learning approach (SoTL). This paper will be of interest to academic managers, program managers, e-learning support staff, administrators and lecturers.
