According to the latest National Survey of Student Engagement,
[W]omen faculty are more likely than men to use course management tools such as posting announcements, grades, and lecture notes, and associate professors are less likely than instructors/lecturers to use the same types of tools. Interestingly, older students (at least age 25) used interactive technologies significantly more often than traditional aged students…This may be partially explained by the fact that older students take more classes online.
Differences by discipline were another interesting finding. Students majoring in business, education, and professional fields other than engineering used course management and interactive technologies most often..However, education faculty used interactive tools significantly more often than their counterparts in other disciplines.
