Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the needs for a mobile application which will be developed so that the problems faced by academics in intra-faculty communication can be solved and their professional development can be supported. A questionnaire form consisting of two sections was used by researchers as a data collection tool of the study. Frequency analysis was conducted on the data obtained from the academics who were included in the study. At the end of the study, it was concluded that academics experienced problems as regards the communication means they used in the faculty, that phone costs increased, lines were mostly occupied, meetings took too much time and e-mails occasionally were not delivered. It was found out that academics requested that intra-faculty communication should be performed through a mobile device and should be given educative information as regards their professional development.
