Summary This paper reports on the introduction of a computer conferencing  component into a first year study unit in Technology Management at Deakin University, Australia. It was found that significant variations in computer  usage were correlated to student study mode, including source of computer access, source of Internet access, hours per week computer usage, regular use of email, regular use of the Internet, and number of times the conference was accessed. Other moderate differences were also noted. Following  exposure to the computer conference, on-campus students were more likely to agree computers could assist their learning, and off-campus students  were less likely to agree that learning from computers would be better than classes/lectures.
