Abstract


The aim of this study was to determine the attitudes of undergraduate students towards the educational uses of the Internet. A 27-item questionnaire was administered to 207 undergraduate students at the Department of Computer and Instructional Technologies Education (CITE) of the Faculty of Education of Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University during the fall 2002 semester. The five items that met with the strongest agreement from the sample were the following:
1- The Internet is as important as other research tools (n=141)
2- I find using the Internet easier than using the library (n=107)
3- Using the Internet makes learning fun (n=89)
4- I access the Internet more at school than at home (n=80)
5- Knowledge of the Internet is essential for surviving college (n=79)
One hundred and ninety-six students said that they would access their course materials if they were on the Web; 169 of them stated that they would take a class requiring Internet use if given the choice.
