New information and communication technology (ICT) enables new opportunities for learning. However, for these opportunities to benefit students and staff, they must have ready access to ICT and positive attitudes toward its usefulness for learning and teaching. This paper reports some initial results from analysis of data obtained from surveys of ICT access, and attitudes toward ICT usefulness for learning, of students and staff at an Australian university in late 2009 and early 2010. The surveys were conducted as part of a larger project to identify ICT likely to be of most benefit for student learning. The survey data will be used to inform decisions about adoption of new digital technologies for learning and teaching and the provision of professional development to staff.
