Laptop computers and wireless university campus networks: Is flexibility and effectiveness improved?
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Volume 25, Number 3, ISSN 0814-673X Publisher: Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education
This study explores whether university students find that laptop computers and networks increase flexibility and effectiveness of studying. Special attention has been paid to non-traditional students who have extra commitments, such as taking care of children or term-time employment. Questionnaire data was collected from students who had the opportunity to acquire a laptop partly sponsored by the university. The data was analysed quantitatively. Results show that students with children particularly benefited from the support the laptops and networks provided. However, term-time employment did not influence students' experiences of flexibility or effectiveness in studying. Since it is increasingly common for university students to have other commitments along with their studies, this information can be utilised when planning teaching and student support practices.
