This study is based on college students’ need to freely access and use content without the hindrance of dealing with copyright issues. Responses to a questionnaire on the desirable features of an educational information system to be used freely were collected from 1,604 undergraduate students and analyzed. As a result of the analysis it was found, first, that RESTful services should be considered from the perspective of Web services. Second, so far as information desired by students was concerned, job-related information and undergraduate major-related video contents were found to be highly important. It was then suggested that the availability of ‘convenient interfaces’ and ‘copyright-secured data’ be discussed as priorities when configuring a freely usable system. Let alone the systematic aspects, this study carries significance in that it analyzed the positions of users as well and thereby identified the types of information desired by them.
