Authors: Mostofa, Sk. Mamun
Issue Date: Mar-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Examines the use of internet among business students in Darul Ihsan University, a pioneer private university of Bangladesh. A total of 162 questionnaires were distributed and 137 completed questionnaires were returned. Findings reveal a high percentage of internet use among students. More than 56 percent of the respondents use the internet for educational purposes. The access point for them is mostly the university. Google and Yahoo! search engines are found to be more widely used than other search engines. The major problem faced by the students in their use of the internet includes slow access speed. Recommends that the bandwidth should be increased to overcome the problem of slow connectivity of the university to internet and more computers with latest specifications and multimedia facilities should be provided.
