Abstract

Driven by Information Technologies (IT), universities are making in depth changes to the nature and form of learning processes, which are intended to better prepare students for entry into the labour market. In this paper, we focus on the evolution of students' use of IT in an institution characterized by organizational changes, and we analyse the determinants of students' e-skills using a sample set of French university students. We show that students' involvement in the use of IT increases their e-skills. IT learning by doing and IT learning by using also increase some categories of students' e-skills. In addition, collaborative and cooperative learning are positively associated with students' advanced e-skills.
