ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2012 
by Eden Dahlstrom

This annual study is conducted to help institutions and educators understand the undergraduate student behaviors and opinions of today to inform the technology needs of the students of tomorrow.

The 2012 study marks the ninth year of data collection about student uses of, ownership of, and attitudes toward technology in conjunction with their academic experiences. This year’s results include responses from more than 100,000 students from 195 colleges and universities.

Blended-Learning Environments Are the Norm

Blended-learning environments have become the norm—nearly three out of four students have taken at least one course that includes online components, and students say that these environments best support how they learn.
