The purpose of this study was to explore Family Sciences students' attitudes toward using technology in coursework. A survey was completed by 109 undergraduate and graduate students who had been assigned a required computer component. Most of the students had easy access to computers. The majority reported confidence in computer use and an interest in learning more about computers while in college. Overall, the students' responses were similar in that most reported positive attitudes toward the use of technology in coursework. Some differences between groups were seen. Undergraduates were more likely than graduate students to say that they would use e-mail to state an opinion rather than state it orally in class. There were also differences between experienced e-mail users and novice e-mail users. Experienced users were more likely to say they needed little computer training and more likely to want more computer components in their coursework.
