This article is the first in the weekly series, IT Snapshots. Currently, IT Snapshots is exploring how UO students use technology.

Today, to begin our series on how UO students use technology, we look at the simple question of what types of technology students own.

The chart illustrates that laptops and internet-capable mobile devices (iPhones, Android phones, iPod Touches, etc.) are widely used amongst University of Oregon students. Desktop computers, netbooks and e-readers are less frequently purchased.

In 2009, the University of Oregon began participating in the ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology. Today's data were gathered in the 2010 Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology.
