Kienzl, Gregory; Li, Yong
A survey conducted in the fall of 1996 shows that a majority of community colleges have the following technological amenities: campus computer labs, Internet connectivity, campus computer networks, increased funding for instructional technology, and separate instructional systems departments. The Community College Computer Survey was sent to nearly 1,300 community colleges, and consisted of 7 sections covering network and Internet connectivity, networks and mainframes, computer access and lab usage, computing services, software availability, personnel in instructional technology offices, and funding/institutional planning for computer services. Graphs and charts illustrate responses to the survey, as well as student-to-computer ratios, computer distribution, accessibility, and operation hours for different community colleges. (Contains 10 tables and 18 graphs.) (AS)
