Technostress and its impact on end-users and organisations

Document Type

News Article


Technostress is stress induced from technology and is a topic of interest to several IS researchers. Negative effects of technostress has been researched extensively in organisations. Even though there has been an increased proliferation of digital devices in academia, there is a dearth of studies examining the prevalence of technostress and its impact among students. Increased use of technology in higher education has compelled students to complete all their academic work, including assessments, using technology. Technology-enhanced learning applications such as learning management systems, MOOCs and digital exam devices require students to develop ICT skills. We investigated the impact of technostress on the academic productivity of students. We also examined coping strategies used by students to deal with technostress.

We would like to continue our research in this area. Scholars interested to join can contact the researcher.
