Current Business Research Paper 2
Introduction and Relevant Details
The purpose of this research was to investigate if computer use increases active
engagement in the learning process, as perceived by students. Two aspects of learning were
examined: active engagement of students in the learning process, and student interaction with
fellow students and/or instructors. In a survey of 640 community college students in the United

instructors in classrooms to understand the subject matter presented and less time on computers.
On questions relating to frequency of use of computer software, it was found that the Internet
was the most frequently used software followed by word processing. Descriptive statistics
related to the perceived effectiveness of computer use on student learning are presented from the
research. This the first question dealt with the use of computers in regards of helping students to
be more actively engaged in their learning. 75.6 % of students either agreed or strongly agreed
that use of IT tools helped them to be more actively engaged in learning. Question two dealt
with the use of computers in regards of making it easier for students to review material that they
