2017 Digital Study Trends Survey

We asked over 1,000 students about their use of technology in college learning & studying.

Key Findings

  • 60% of students feel that digital learning technology has improved their grades, with a fifth saying it “significantly” improved their grades.
  • More than 61% of students agreed that digital learning technology is extremely or very helpful in preparing for exams.
  • 82% of students reported using laptops for homework assignments, compared to 59% for print materials.
  • Just 35% of students report using smartphones to complete homework assignments or study for exams.
As a learning science company, we’ve long understood the positive impact that digital solutions can have on student learning, and it’s great to see students themselves also recognizing those benefits.
