Abstract

This study examines the relationships between student characteristics, student use of computers and other information technologies (C&IT), the amount of effort they devote to other college activities, and self-reported gains in a range of desirable college outcomes. Based on an analysis of responses to the College Student Experiences Questionnaire from 18,344 undergraduates at 71 four-year colleges and universities, students appeared to benefit more from C&IT when they used it frequently and in a variety of ways. Equally important, using C&IT was positively related to educational effort with the effects of C&IT on outcomes of college being largely mediated through the educational efforts students put forth.
