Abstract

The Internet has spread through to our daily lives, and also the world of education is no exception. The days where students are truly rely upon teachers and the textbooks for learning resources are gone. Now day teachers have smoothen the progress of learning where students are encouraged to use multiple sources especially from the Cyberspace.

Previous study found that student's especially male students display the higher usage of Internet activities and also in terms of age differences was negatively related to any Internet activities especially to messaging and downloading activities. This study done shows that perceived usefulness is the important driver for Internet usage. For perceived ease of use was positively related to browsing and downloading activities while perceived enjoyment was positively related to all Internet activities expect for downloading.
