Between 2006 and 2010, sophomore engineering students at four universities were exposed to technologies designed to increase their learning in undergraduate engineering courses. Our findings suggest that students at all sites found the technologies integrated into their courses useful to their learning. Video solutions received the most positive feedback and were found to be the most beneficial to the students. When used as intended, the course blog provides a discussion tool for the students allowing for asynchronous collaboration. The inclusion of technology in engineering courses has the potential to positively impact student learning and collaboration. Students find the availability of video solutions very helpful to their learning and when the course blog is used by enough students, it provides an easy way for students to receive assistance from their peers and instructors.
