ABSTRACT

The organizations worldwide, due to ever increasing constraints on time and space are increasingly  recognising the need to facilitate access to services through the exchange of information using  information and communication technologies. It has been seen based upon the literature review that  ICTs are used by people and organizations for their information processing and communication  purposes in a relatively simple and basic manner, however, its utilization has not been so valuable. In  this context and background, the present study investigates a set of factors and their influence on /CT  utilization in select organizations in the higher education sector. A sample of 150 respondents from the  University of jammu and Panjab University have been surveyed to identify the factors affecting the  users’ intention to use ICTs. The factor analysis has resulted in a total of 11 factors having 45 items in  all. The data thus collected has been analyzed using different statistical techniques which includes  descriptive statistics i.e. mean and standard deviation. The paper has established the relationships  between variables viz. attitude, belief, self-efficacy, accessibility, ease of use and so on for the utilization  of information technologies.
