ECAR Study of Students and Information Technology, 2005: Convenience, Connection, Control, and Learning Key Findings


A longitudinal extension of the 2004 ECAR study of Students and Information Technology, this 2005 key finding is based on quantitative data from over 18,000 freshmen and senior students at 63 higher education institutions. It focuses on what kinds of information technologies today's students are using, with what levels of skill they are using them, how information technology use contributes to the undergraduate experience, and what value the use of IT adds in terms of learning. The findings also provides a review of and comparison with the 2004 ECAR key findings of students and IT and the 2003 ECAR study of faculty use of course management systems undertaken at the University of Wisconsin System.
