Abstract

The article seeks to answer a number of questions. What factors influence of how to use laptop computers in university studies? What features reveal a successful integration of laptop computers into studies, or, on the contrary, what evidence shows that this technology might be hard to implement into the study process? The article consists of four parts. The first part discusses preconditions for the use of laptop computers in studies. The second part discloses the factors of the laptop computer use in studies; the third part reveals the criteria for the expression of the factors. The fourth part integrates a complex system of factors into a methodologically grounded model of the research on the expression of laptop computer use factors in studies at the university.
