In early 2004, the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research surveyed nearly 4,500 students at 12 universities on their use of technology. The quantitative survey was augmented by more than 20 on-site student focus group sessions. This presentation reviews the key findings of this study. Students use IT primarily for convenience, communications, and control. Also presented are student preferences and skills using IT in the classroom, use of course management systems, and future trends.
