User feedback is very important in all areas of computer science especially in the
development of computer applications. Hence, student feedback on the use of
technology enhanced learning in higher education in Ireland is relevant to the quality
of the learning resources to be created by learning designers and academics in the
future. The book “Student Reactions to Learning with Technologies: Perceptions and
Outcomes” (Moyle & Wijngaards, 2012) was published by IGI Global in October
2011. This book includes contributions from various authors who are interested in
students’ feedback regarding how technology has impacted on their educational
experience. This book provides feedback from students located in different countries.
Chapter 10: “Students’ views of E-Learning: The impact of technologies on learning
in higher education in Ireland ” (O'Donnell & Sharp, 2012) provides feedback from
three hundred and twenty students to inform learning designers and academics about
students’ thoughts and opinions on the impact of technologies on learning in higher
education in Ireland. This research was conducted in both Trinity College Dublin and
the Dublin Institute of Technology. The responses received from the students who
kindly participated in this study were analysed and the findings are presented in this
chapter. Analysis of the responses received from these students indicates that students
are of the opinion that the use of technologies in higher education can beneficially
transform learning; however, technologies will never replace lecturers
