ECAR Study of Students and Information Technology, 2004: Convenience, Connection, and Control

Abstract

Abstract

This study is based on quantitative data from nearly 4,500 freshmen and senior students at 12 higher education institutions. It focuses on what kinds of information technologies today's students are using, with what levels of skill are they using them, how information technology use contributes to the undergraduate experience, and what value the use of IT adds in terms of learning. The study also provides a review of and comparison with the 2003 ECAR study on faculty use of course management systems undertaken at the University of Wisconsin System.
