For the fourteenth year, ECAR has sought to map the contours of these changes and growth and to understand students’ preferences and experiences through it all. Drawing on responses from tens of thousands of students across dozens of U.S. institutions, this report marks yet another insightful and challenging contribution from our ECAR team to the higher education field’s ongoing exploration of students’ engagement with technology.
ECAR collaborated with 157 institutions to collect responses from 13,451 faculty respondents across 7 countries about their technology experiences. ECAR also collaborated with 124 institutions to collect responses from 43,559 undergraduate students across 10 countries about their technology experiences.
