Improving student outcomes through the well designed use of computer technology in university business classes

Abstract:

This study examines improving student learning outcomes through a structured approach to technology utilization in the design of the course. A process was developed to actively integrate laptops into two Business Intelligence classes where numerous software applications were introduced in order to build student skills with analysis. In addition the implications of a teaching lab with uniform hardware and software versus the variety that results when students bring their own laptops is also considered. Results showed students’ evaluations of the process was positive and some significant improvements in skill development over the previous semester resulted. Insights and suggestions are explored.
