Academic Work, the Internet and U.S. College Students
Jones, Steve; Johnson-Yale, Camille; Millermaier, Sarah; Perez, Francisco Seoane
Internet and Higher Education, v11 n3-4 p165-177 2008
The aim of this study is to explore, based on a nationally representative sample, U.S. college students' uses of the Internet in their studies and their perceptions of academic life online, and changes in both perception and use since a 2002 report on the topic. Findings show that overall Internet use for academic purposes has increased. Students report generally positive opinions about the Internet's utility for academic work, but satisfaction with it for academic interactions may be on the decline. (Contains 5 tables.)
