Predictors of Student Internet Use: Data from Three Developing Countries
Fusilier, Marcelline; Durlabhji, Subhash
Learning, Media and Technology, v33 n1 p59-69 Mar 2008
Training, organizational support, attitude and national culture were explored in relation to college students' Internet usage. Samples were drawn from India, Mauritius and Reunion Island (an overseas Department of France). Each nation differs culturally from the others. Questionnaire data was collected on students' Internet usage as well as the predictor variables. Data was analyzed using hierarchical multiple regression. The country groups were dummy-coded. Results suggested that attitude, training and university support were positively related to students' Internet use. Non-significant interaction terms suggested that these relationships did not change according to country sample. The present findings are consistent with previous reports using samples from Western, economically developed countries. (Contains 2 tables and 1 note.)
