12 Winter 2016 Governement Elearning! Poor I.T. Disgusts U.K. Students New research shows that poor I.T. facilities are having a negative impact on university students in the United Kingdom. In a survey by AppDynamics, 63% of students cited poor software as a contributory factor in missed deadlines. It comes as no surprise that almost all students (96%) use at least one application to complete their studies. Most students (63%) use two to four applications on a regular basis. Yet 68% of students say complex resources and substandard virtual learning environments impact negatively on their learning. A signifcant proportion (71%) had experienced technical diffculties with university applications. Almost two-thirds of students (63%) had missed assignment dead- lines due to poor university software performance, which was the most commonly cited frustration. Jeremy Duggan, EMEA vice president at AppDynamics, encour- ages CIOs to appreciate the role of software in developing students as brand ambassadors to attract further talent to their university. —More info: Call for Papers: Enterprise Learning!
