ECAR Study of UG Students2013 Results: Nationally & UoM

study overview
Study Overview
  • Started by EDUCAUSE in 2004
    • UoM began participating in 2005
    • 2013 was the 8th 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
summary of participation
Summary of Participation
  • 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)
worth noting our students continue to look like other students across the u s
Worth Noting: Our students continue to look like other students across the U.S.
  • In most cases the results from UoM students largely mirror those from other institutions in this study. This is a trend we’ve seen since beginning participation in this study.
  • A few notable exceptions are highlighted in this report.
equipment ownership
Equipment Ownership
  • 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
slide8
Observation: Personal ownership of internet-enabled personal technology is very relevant to our students’ academic success.
  • 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.

Implications: Innovative pedagogical strategies (BYOD, flipped, in-class polling, etc.) that rely on personal devices can be readily pursued.

slide9
Observation: Campus investments in computer labs are seen by students as primarily for convenience & printing.

How our students use lab equipment:

  • When they leave personal laptop at home (57%)
  • Printing (67%)
  • Specialty software (31%)
  • Faster internet (27%)

Implications: Consider print-only labs or similar spaces? Expand the benefit of bringing personal laptops to campus (charging stations, furniture, space, etc.)?

observation campus support for mobile device as a practical tool is making headway
Observation: Campus support for mobile device as a practical tool is making headway.

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%)

Implications: Explore other ways in which the campus can take advantage of student’s willingness to use personal mobile equipment for conducting business as a student.

observation perception of faculty use of technology is improving
Observation : Perception of faculty use of technology is improving

Most or All Faculty…

Implications: Campus faculty community is becoming more prepared for teaching with technology. (A similar survey of faculty self-perceptions might be useful.)

observation students still prefer direct communication with their faculty via traditional means
Observation: Students still prefer direct communication with their faculty via traditional means.

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%)

Implications: Faculty should not feel bad sticking to traditional means of connecting with their students.

observation campus use and perceived value of lms d2l lags other campuses in us
Observation: Campus use and perceived value of LMS (D2L) lags other campuses in US.
  • 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%

Implications: Need to understand why our faculty use the LMS less than at other campuses. Perhaps need programs/incentives to encourage more use.

observation students would like to have more use of technology in the classroom
Observation: Students would like to have more use of technology in the classroom.
  • 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

Implications: Disconnect between students and faculty on the role of personal technology in the classroom. What are the impediments? (wireless, furniture, culture, skills)?

observation while fully o l has become mainstream students do not prefer it
Observation: While fully O/L has become mainstream, students do not prefer it.
  • 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.

Implications: Perhaps better understand why students feel this way? Is there a need to improve fully O/L experiences for students?

Should we explore formalizing a broader use of blended courses for the future?

miscellaneous observations
Miscellaneous Observations:

= Yes

  • 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% don’t even know what a MOOC is.
    • These numbers are essentially identical to U.S.

= ?

Implications: Should we be cautious about our MOOC investments and instead think about more lecture capture technology?

recap of findings
Recap of Findings
  • The UoM continues to mirror national trends (significant variances are rare; e.g., LMS usage).
  • Students see our faculty as having better skills using technology in the classroom.
  • Ownership of personal computing devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc.) is nearing 100%.
  • Student perceptions on the value of technology in classes is strong,…
  • But there is a disconnect with actual use in the classroom.
