Most students (70 percent) say they prefer mostly or completely face-to-face learning environments, but those preferences are greatly impacted by specific demographic factors.
This finding and others about learning preferences and digital tools are documented in EDUCAUSE’s 2019 study on students and information technology. The report pulls from data on more than 40,000 students across 118 U.S. institutions.
Married students or those in a domestic partnership, students working 40 or more hours weekly, students age 25 or older, and those who have both a physical and a learning disability requiring technology for coursework all say they strongly prefer classes that are mostly or entirely online, according to the research.
