Students are the end users of the Information Systems that educators use to enhance students? learningexperiences. The use of technologies in education has altered the ways in which lecturers and studentscan interact and has expanded the volume of information that students can access. This study was undertakento obtain students perspectives on the uses of technologies in higher education to assist educatorsin 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 educationinstitutions in Ireland. Analysis of the responses received from three hundred and twenty studentsindicates that students are of the opinion that the use of technologies in higher education can beneficiallytransform learning; however, technologies will never replace lecturers.
