Sanghera, Kamaljeet K.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of the research is to analyze the value addition in students' information communication and technology (ICT) literacy level and confidence in using technology after completing a general education information technology course at a four-year university. An online survey was created to examine students' perceptions. The findings revealed that students' confidence level and several ICT skills had improved after completing the course. The improved ICT skills are in the areas of database, spreadsheet, and Web 2.0 technologies such as blogs, wikis, and web site development. The findings further indicated that information technology courses need to demonstrate practical usage in addition to theoretical concepts. The research results will benefit universities and colleges by driving the design and implementation of technology curriculum in higher education.
