Results of a survey of older students' perceptions of technology-based active and collaborative learning assignments are presented and discussed. The forty-six students surveyed were registered nurses enrolled in a transition to baccalaureate education course. Fewer than half of the students had computer experience prior to the course enrollment, and only two had electronic mail and World Wide Web skills. Overall, students reported a positive course experience. They also report that their learning was positively affected by the innovative course design and delivery. Most were apprehensive and frustrated initially, but changed their perceptions as the course progressed. Students strongly suggested a computer orientation course as part of the nursing curriculum.
