Impressions of Community College Studentsâ€™ IT Experiences
Tuesday, July 17, 2007
This ECAR research bulletin highlights some of the similarities and differences between students attending four-year institutions and those attending community colleges, focusing on those areas where there are challenges and opportunities for using IT to improve students' academic experiences. Since 2004, ECAR has conducted an annual study of how students in higher education perceive the impact of information technology on their academic experiences. In its third year of undertaking the study (2006), fully 96 institutions participated, including eight two-year community colleges. From those eight community colleges, a total of 3,380 students responded to the survey for the study, representing 11.8 percent of the total survey respondents.
