Convenience, Communications, and Control: How Students Use Technology

Saturday, January 1, 2005

Abstract

Even though technology may not be the entire focus, colleges and universities make massive technology investments based on what they believe students need, want, and already have. In this sixth chapter from "Educating the Net Generation", Bob Kvavik reports on the first EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research study that details what technology students have, how they use it, and the benefits they believe result. Clearly, there is room for improvement in higher education's use of learning technologies as we move from course management systems to more interactive approaches.
