Students are the end users of the Information Systems that educators use to enhance students’ learning
experiences. The use of technologies in education has altered the ways in which lecturers and students
can interact and has expanded the volume of information that students can access. This study was undertaken
to obtain students perspectives on the uses of technologies in higher education to assist educators
in improving the pedagogical design of e-learning platforms, known as learning management systems.
This chapter provides students’ perspectives on the academic use of technologies in two higher education
institutions in Ireland. Analysis of the responses received from three hundred and twenty 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.
