As a student at USC upstate, you have been selected to participate in a survey that will help us learn how to provide you with better information about technology services at USC Upstate. The survey is part of the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR) National Study of Undergraduate Students and Technology, 2013.
The results of this survey are very important to us to help us understand and improve educational experiences of students at Upstate. For example, last year we learned more about what devices students bring to campus and how they use them in ways to support their learning. We learned about how many students take online courses. We learned about student preferences for technology use in their course instruction, and much more.
From Dean of Students, Laura Puckett-Boler:
“At USC Upstate, we believe that student voices in our planning and decision-making processes matter. We invite you to add YOUR voice to help better understand how to improve information technology at Upstate.”
Your participation in the study is voluntary, and your responses will be completely confidential. We encourage you to participate, and completing the web-based survey should only take about 20 minutes. The link to the survey has been provided to you in an email to your USC Upstate email account. If you have any questions or problems, contact Cindy Jennings, director of learning technologies, at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com .
