S. J. Schaeffer, III, EdD Advanced Learning Center Fall 2013
Started by EDUCAUSE in 2004 UoM began participating in 2005 2013 was the 8 th year that UoM participated Method: Data collected in Spring 2013 All UG classes solicited (Only Fresh/Senior in past) Online survey request: Email from CIO TigerLAN prompt page at login
250+ institutions participated in 2013 Response rate: US – 29,262 UoM – 771 (2.6% of all responses) 120 Freshmen / 143 Sophomores / 190 Juniors / 262 Seniors / 56 Other 72% Female / 28% Male (similar to previous years)
In most cases the results from UoM students largely mirror those from other institutions in this study. This is a trend weve seen since beginning participation in this study. A few notable exceptions are highlighted in this report.
Own…UoMNationally …Laptop95%97% …Desktop53%42% …Tablet52%42% …eReader29%22% …Smart Phone85% Notes: Laptop up from 83% in 2011 Desktop is down from 56% 2011 Tablet is up from 20% in 2011 eReader is up from 10% in 2011 iPhone is up from 62% in 2011
85% of our students say that their personal laptop is very or extremely important to their academic work and success. In addition, 67% say the same about their smartphone 90% of our students own two (2) or more internet-enabled devices and 60% own three (3) or more.
How our students use lab equipment: When they leave personal laptop at home (57%) Printing (67%) Specialty software (31%) Faster internet (27%)
Things they can do with a mobile device: Access library resources (40%) Check grades (61%) Register for courses (49%) Check financial aid (51%) Access online course information (40%)
Students want faculty to use more: Regular email (65%) Face-to-Face conversation (61%) …but not so much on social networking: Texting (34%) Chat (23%) Facebook (13%) Twitter (10%)
Pct of our students who did not use the LMS in the last 12 months is 21%, while the US average is 5%. However, 40% wish faculty would use the LMS more often to communicate. The campus LMS is perceived to be very important for your academic success? UoM = 51%, US = 74%
More use of personal equipment in the classroom: Laptops (53%), Smartphone (40%), Tablet (38%) In terms of how technology helps them: 54% say is makes them more actively involved 74% say it helps them achieve academic success 73% say technology prepares them for future educational plans. But our faculty seem to be going in the other direction: 70% report smartphones being discouraged or banned entirely in class Only 1 in 5 report encouragement to use their laptop in class
Good news: 50% have taken a fully O/L course in the last 12 months. Bad news: Only 10% prefer fully O/L. Preference: Blended is preferred by 60% of our students.
Classroom lecture capture – 62% want more access to video-recorded classroom lectures that are available via the web. MOOCs are not on students radar: Only 2% of our students have taken a MOOC in the last 12 months with only 0.4% reported completing it. 75% dont even know what a MOOC is. These numbers are essentially identical to U.S. = ? = Yes
1. The UoM continues to mirror national trends (significant variances are rare; e.g., LMS usage). 2. Students see our faculty as having better skills using technology in the classroom. 3. Ownership of personal computing devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc.) is nearing 100%. 4. Student perceptions on the value of technology in classes is strong,… 5. But there is a disconnect with actual use in the classroom.
