Students Still Expect Computer Labs
9 October 2007 3 Comments
A post from The Wired Campus blog is entitled ‘Student Computer Labs Still in Demand‘ which summarises the results of a survey in the US. Despite 72% of all college and university students in the US owning their own computers it appears that they still want computer labs because:
- their laptops might be stolen
- they needed the software available on the college-owned computers
- they didn’t want to cart heavy laptops around
- they needed to use the labs’ printers
