Abstract

Integration of technology and basic computer literacy into our colleges and universities is undoubtedly a necessity. However, little consideration in the literature has been given to specific needs of the student. Educators need to consider the level of incoming technology literacy, and career field of the student when implementing technology training to ensure that individual needs are met without overloading the student. Universities have a responsibility to insure that the integration of technology into courses is not done recklessly, and that all students have an equal opportunity for success.
