  • D. Andone

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The main aim of this research project is to investigate the relationship between students and their electronic learning environments, and in particular, how eLearning spaces influence and are influenced by the adaptable and adaptive learning attitudes of the new student generation. In particular, it focuses on what I defined as digital students as young adult students who have grown up with active participation in technology as an everyday feature of their lives. The characteristics of the technologically confident digital students were found to include a strong need for instantaneity, a desire to control their environment and to channel their social life via extensive use of technology.
