This study examines the utilization of online course material by students and evaluates the relation with students' subsequent performance in assessments. Evidence is provided of the extensive utilization of online course material, although the pattern of utilization suggests that the label of 'digital natives' being applied to these students may be somewhat presumptuous. Specifically there is some evidence of a positive link between utilisation of practical exercises and performance as well as lecture slides and performance. No significance is found for either the utilisation of the discussion questions, quizzes or podcasts. Whilst we have made a necessary first step in order to ascertain impact of student utilisation and performance, a bigger question remains. How to increase students' timely utilisation of material?
