Abstract

This study evaluated undergraduate students’ utilization of internet as a learning tool in University
of Jos. The study was guided by Gagne’s theory of learning and constructivist theory. Cross
sectional survey research design was adopted for the study; a sample of 514 students was drawn
out from a population of 2,572 students, which involved 200 and 400 level students of the Faculty of
Education, University of Jos. Proportional random sampling technique was used in selecting the
sample. Questionnaire was used as instrument for data collection, whose content validity was
sought by experts’ judgment. The reliability coefficient for the instrument was 0.82 and the method
used in analysing the data was simple percentages and analysis of variance (ANOVA) also known
as F-test was used for the hypothesis. The results of the study reveals that using the internet
provides substantial information useful for learning and a few 200 level students felt that the use of
internet for learning is difficult. It is therefore recommended that students should align their
potentials for significant and positive use of the internet for learning.
