Abstract

Using data from the 1999 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF:99), this report examines postsecondary instructional faculty and staff's access to and use of electronic mail (e-mail) and the Internet. Little descriptive information exists at the national level to address basic questions about technology use and teaching in postsecondary education. This study responds to this need by answering the following questions: Who has access to telecommunications technologies? How much and in what ways do they use these technologies for instructional purposes? How does technology use relate to workload and contact with students?
