ABSTRACT

This study investigated the attitude of students imbued with different characteristics towards the use of computer related learning facilities in the North West and South West Regions of   Cameroon. It was designed to respond to two questions, namely: Do female students have a different attitude towards the use of computer related learning facilities from male students? Do students who are inclined to the Arts subjects have a different attitude towards the use of computer related learning facilities from the students who are inclined towards the science subjects? The sample consisted of 1353 students from 18 schools. These schools were randomly selected from 35 schools with computer laboratories and internet facilities in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon. The research instrument used was a student questionnaire. The data collected were subjected to descriptive and inferential statistical analysis, using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). The major findings of the study were that female students have a less positive attitude towards the use of computer related learning facilities than male students. Irrespective of subject area, the students’ attitude towards the use of computer-related learning facilities was generally positive. On the basis of these findings, recommendations for enhancing students’ attitude towards the use of computer-related learning facilities were made for education policy development and for teaching.
