The Internet Culture, Student Learning and Student Retention.
Van Patten, James J.; Chen, Ge
Regardless of all its shortcomings, the Internet is essential in student retention and learning for at-risk students, homebound students, placebound employees, and for assisting workers on and off the job to maintain and upgrade their skills. The search for integrating the Internet to provide ease of accessing information with strategies that enhance student retention and learning continues. This paper briefly describes the role of the Internet in higher education. Discussion includes email communications and Web sites dealing with student retention; online initiatives at the University of Texas at Austin, which has been working to become a paperless school; the issue of plagiarism; opportunities offered by distance education; filtering Internet information; offensive material and first amendment speech rights; spamming; and initiatives undertaken to deal with quality of Internet information.
