Potential Topics for students in college

with one comment

There are many subjects that can be approached in regards to students in college.  A big issue regarding college students is their interest in technology.  The explosion of smart phones and tablets allow a student the power of a laptop without the weight.  the use of these devices can greatly enhance the learning experience.  it also has the chance of hindering learning by distracting the student during lectures.  it is a trade-off that can potentially change the way learning is done in the classroom.  A more local, IUSB example of a technology post is a review of the new mobile site for IU.  They have made the most accessed parts of the website more accessible to users on their smart phones.  It allows for students to quickly check for information from their classes while on the go without having to access a computer.

Textbooks can be the bane of any college students existence.  With soaring prices at the bookstore, students are always looking for ways to save on their textbooks.  The web is full of used textbook websites that sell books for cheaper prices.  Some of these websites can potentially save a student hundreds of dollars per semester.  Another helpful topic for students is the popularity of renting textbooks for the semester.  There are many upsides to renting a textbook, especially for textbooks that will never be used again after that semester.  The downsides are that the student doesn’t own it, which means if it gets destroyed or damaged; the student is liable for the book.

  1. Interesting ideas. It would be important to provide information about which departments are more likely to allow a student to use a laptop or table PC in the classroom.
