This piece of text is very useful for the research project on learning areas because it tells the differences of classrooms and dorms to learning areas of the college. Students prefer to have separate learning areas rather than doing tutoring and such in a classroom or a dorm room. They want a clear separation between formal teaching and living spaces. Students want to have faculty around throughout their living-learning centers. Also, students much rather have diversity when grouping themselves rather than grouping themselves by gender. Therefore, learning centers throughout the college can promote this aspect that students want.

This e-book is also very useful to the research project on learning areas of a college because it talks about centers for teaching and learning. So one can compare teaching areas and learning areas and then see which one is more useful in a college. Also, it is a good source to see which one is more comfortable for the students and which one students can seek more knowledge from faculty in.

This is important for the research of learning centers at City Tech because it addresses the importance of the two combinations of the library and the writing area. Also, the details explains how the two centers of learning are supposed to be used and how important both are.

More reliable research is how students are getting their help at City Tech, and this supports that. It also explains the importance of guiding the students.

Last, the information about the student space in learning areas are important and this explains how the space should be for better concentration for students. It is very important that the student space is very comfortable, this allows the student to stay focus.
