Canada: Ryerson University Library and Archives Releases Findings From Laptop Lending Study

Ryerson University is located in Toronto.

From The Eyeopener:

The Ryerson University Library and Archives (RULA) has released the results of 2013 study into its laptop lending program.

The three main themes of the survey questions were why and how students are using the laptop lending program, feedback on the current program, and students interest in a future mobile learning portal.

The RULA laptop-lending program currently has 145 laptops, both PCs and MacBooks, available for lending to the 38,000-student population at Ryerson University, for a maximum four-hour period. The program was initially designed with the Millennial generation, students born in the early 1990s, in mind. However, a new Student Learning Centre (SLC) will open in 2015, which promoted this study of how well the laptop lending program meets the changing needs of the Millennial students.
