Abstract

Teaching at universities can be seen as service on students. To meet the needs of students according to e-learning services best, an annual questionnaire amongst freshmen is carried out at Graz University of Technology by its Department of Social Learning since 2007. The poll takes a detailed look on digital device usage as well as on IT and Web 2.0 competences of the freshmen. This unique survey in Austria reflects the media behavior of young people aged 18 to 22 and can be compared to bigger reports like the German JIM-study. It is therefore an important input to the analysis of our youth culture. Special focus of this year´s survey was laid on the question, whether the field of study correlates with any of the polled elements? Is there a need for a specialized e-learning service subject to the field of study? Apart from that, this publication offers all relevant results of this year´s survey.
