The extensive use of electronic media to supplement traditional methods has the potential to revolutionize the educational process in the United States. The effect, if any, of extensive use of electronic media for interpersonal communication on technology-assisted education is investigated by determining student perceptions of such effects. The study builds upon the knowledge that electronic media can keep people connected, but can have negative impacts on face-to-face communication. Through mixed methods research, the data collection approach includes a survey of a sample of 105 undergraduate students in the United States, and is augmented by an integrated review of literature.
