INTERNET USAGE
  • Informational vs. Transactional
  • Our usage vs. Millennials usage
  • -we use internet for info they use it for
    recreation, connectivity and transactions
  • Legal research and writing

    and credibility of sources

40
ONLINE HABITS AND BEHAVIOR
  • The younger the student, the more internet and
    computer savvy

  • Multitasking is routine.
  • Facebook, MySpace and social networks are common
    place.

41
Millennials Information Preferences

  • Portability of information is critical (web
    portals)
  • Content must be dynamically generated
  • Lag Time is a foreign concept
  • Web Surfing is passé

42
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THIS INFORMATION?
  • Know your clients, personnel
  • - trend watching polls
  • Determine your solution
  • If you have a web site is it up to date?
  • - mobility, uniqueness, interactivity

43
1 - Mobility
  • Mobile Web Sites
  • Personal Digital Assistants (PDA)
  • Palm
  • Pocket PC
  • Smart phones

44
2 - Uniqueness
  • Look no further than your own browserthey want
    at least the appearance of interpersonal
    communication
  • Content delivery must be relevant, custom
    tailored, personally welcoming
  • Websites should anticipate the questions not wait
    for the inquiry.

45
3 - Interactivity
  • Interactive communication and letters
  • Interactive calculators and estimators
  • Interactive forms and electronic signatures
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) forms are not interactive,
    but may be first step.
  • Remember Millennials value communication and
    time above all else.

46
3 Interactivity (contd)
  • Engage with technology teach with content
  • Extend your customer service model (FAQs, email,
    phone, instant messaging) Do you have a process
    for handling incoming e-mail?
  • How can current system be improved by

Educational Issues

    complete, not just fact-based
  • Increased high school drop-out and failure rates
  • Poor class participation
  • Typically under-prepared for class
  • Need specific direction and guidance

48
  • The number one thing to realize with the
    Millennials is that as a whole they reflect much
    more parental perfectionism than any generation
    in living memory. Colleges and universities
    should know that they are not just getting a kid,
    but they are also getting a parent.

    generations is that theres only one other
    choice.
