Lifetracking and Study Habits


This bachelor’s thesis investigates how students can improve their habits of studying by way of lifetracking in mobile applications. The lifetracking application being used in this study goes by the name of Lift. To maximize its potential for success it is beneficial if the motivation to change comes from the student in question, if the student has an interest for testing new technology and if the student is curious and willing to try out unknown techniques. If one intends to use Lift in its studies one should choose habits which hold value and which are repeatable for a longer period of time. This will contribute to a greater chance of success.
