Understanding Students’ Attitudes Toward Electronic Learning Resources

The purpose of this research is to validate the hypothesis that nursing students, like students in other disciplines, are the drivers of the digital shift in higher education publishing, due to their changing behavior and attitudes toward digital learning formats. Additionally, this research analyzed the relationship between nursing student age and course material preferences to investigate if younger students, who have been exposed to technology at an earlier age, are indeed less print-centric in their attitudes and behaviors than their older counterparts. Finally, this research looked at nursing students’ experiences and expectations toward technology.
