U Mugesh, J Srinivasan
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of information technologies on higher education system and conduct research in this regard. This study is comprised of two main parts in it. The first deals with the demographic characteristics of the university students who have been included in the study, and the second deals with the findings on the questionnaires completed by the students about the contribution of the information technologies and information on education and their interpretation thereof and review. New and emerging technologies challenge the traditional process of teaching and learning, and the way education is managed. Information technology, while an important area of study in its own right, is having a major impact across all curriculum areas. Easy worldwide communication provides instant access to a vast array of data, challenging assimilation and assessment skills.
