To determine the availabiltity, utilization of electronic equipment for learning purpsoses among
In a survey involving 200 students from the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences of Kampala
International University-Western Campus was done and a self-administered questionnaire was
used to collect data.
It was found that majority of the students(86%) owned at least one electronic equipment and of
those 35% owned more than one type of electronic equipment. Of the remaining 24% without
personal electronic equipment, 40% preferred to borrow from a friend whereas 24% visited an
internet café and 20% combined both options. Only 16% opted for the university E-lab. Many of
the students (52%) admitted to use their electronics for learning purposes and course work
whereas others (14%) used them for recreation (watching movies, listening to music and playing
games). Though a large number(36%) combined most of the purposes few students (12%) gave
attention to learning computer basics which are the basic guide for the proper use of electronic
equipment. In the their personal opinions about electronic equipment use in learning, students
gave very positive comments and encouraged their use. Others expressed how beneficial
computers are in learning and also expressed the need for improvement in the computer
laboratory services of the university.
Therefore the results revealed a fact that many students have electronic equipment of different
types which they use for various purposes ranging from academic purposes to recreation and
the positivity that they embrace use of electronics in learning.
It also revealed a gap in students’ use of the university’s E-lab reduced initiative of learning
computer basics which would be fundamental in the proper use of electronics.
The university gets to know that most students have personal means of assessing electronic
services therefore help them put them to good use.
University initiates programs that will teach the students computer basics like periodical
seminars since most students do not go back to the computer laboratory once their lessons are
done in computer laboratories.
The university comes up with programs like electronic results, notes, and dissertations and other
research programs, video conferences and correspondences to open up the students to the world
wide networks for better exchange of educational ideas.
