Abstract/Description

The aim of this research study was to explore students' use of ICT in higher education in Scotland and Croatia. A questionnaire survey to gather information was administered at two universities. The sample comprises 450 students at Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland and 620 students at the Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek in Croatia. The analysis confirmed that there are differences in ICT usage between students from the two universities, which are based in countries with differing levels of development and sociological specificities. The results indicated a more unfavourable position in the Croatian university. A survey such as this can be a useful tool in guiding knowledge management strategies and therefore should be conducted regularly.
