Google Canvasses Students on E-Mail Habits

Google’s asking university students to tell them their thoughts on campus e-mail.

The survey asks students about their e-mail habits and preferences, as well as poses questions about usage of other online applications.

“Since e-mail is such a vital tool for managing academic careers – used to coordinate study groups, organize campus activities, or communicate directly with their professors – this generation of college students includes some of the most knowledgeable consumers of online applications ever,” said Jeff Keltner, Google manager of collaboration products for education, in a statement.

Looks like the search giant, which we all know is about to become an online-tool giant (think docs, spreadsheets, calendars, Gmail, etc.) is doing some in-depth research with a tech savvy, early adopter audience.

Hope they share the results.
