From JISC:

The results of the digital experience insights student survey 2019 explore how learners at UK universities and colleges engage with technology.

The results of our digital experience insights student survey provides powerful data from 29,531 students on how they engage with technology.

Data drawn from 13,389 further education (FE) students and 14,525 campus-based higher education (HE) respondents shows that only 40% in FE and 42% in HE feel their course prepares them for the digital workplace.

Sarah Knight, Jisc’s head of change – student experience, says;

“With increasing demand for digital skills in the workplace, technology is no longer optional for colleges and universities. Authentic opportunities for all students to develop digital skills need to be embedded within courses.”

Since the digital experience insights student survey launched in 2016, more than 100,000 students have had their say, helping to shape the digital experience for future learners and contributing to a variety of initiatives in student engagement, curriculum design, and careers and employability services.
