Technology Enabled Learning: Perspective of University Students
Integration of technology in teaching-learning practices of any University is a systematic transformational process. Establishing a policy is the first step of this process. This will be followed by its systematic implementation. SNDT Women's University, Mumbai, India has successfully prepared “technology-enabled learning policy” by following a bottom-up approach. Baseline study of University stakeholders' views and perception was planned at the initial stage. Perspectives of students was the crucial aspect in this study. Student sample was selected using stratified random technique. Students represented all 15 faculties from three campuses which house 39 Post Graduate departments and 13 institutions including undergraduate colleges. The survey revealed students' perspective about technology integration in learning. Almost all students show preference for technology enabled learning. They demand wi-fi access on the campus. As 86% students have smart phones in their hand, they prefer it as a learning device. They suggest use of online learning platform, access to web-based learning resources and social media as learning environment. Students perceive long lectures as boring and mentally stressful. Recorded videos, synchronous online interactions with guest experts are felt as essential. Open access to learning material, international journals, ebooks, etc. is demanded. Students feel that technology enabled learning helps them get ready as global citizens. University students strongly demand BYOD facility across campuses to access worldwide quality education resources. The study of students’ perspectives provides insight for planning ICT infrastructure and for designing technology enabled learning activities across the disciplines. // Paper ID 335
