THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Across the modern world, internet is practically used by lots of people because it’s really accessible and fast to use especially for college students, to apply its main purpose of convenience to do a specific task. The problem is how it really affects the academic learning of each student that perhaps instead of gaining advantages it causes bad effects for its user. As it with all new development, the Internet has its own downside. Likewise with the unpredictable developing of the World Wide Web openly mindfulness and expanding in measure of data it takes in, the Internet is not thoroughly secure and burglary is one of the various threat it postures, specialists individual data is at danger of being access by rebel persons (Inoue, 2006).Formally, that is in the school, our youth utilize the Internet for occasion, when hunting down data and when finishing tests. Casually, that is in their extra time, they talk with companions, play online PC diversions and are included in fan fiction, i.e. utilizing distributed material to make pictures and movies and so on. (Olin-Scheller & Wikström 2010).The Internet is the conclusive innovation of the Information Age, presently motor was the vector of mechanical change of the Industrial Age. This worldwide system computers, to a great extent construct these days with respect to stages of remote correspondence, gives universal limit of multimodal, intuitive correspondence in picked time, rising above space (Castells 2014).Today we live in a world in light of integration and communication, in which a thriving system of electronic frameworks and gadgets helps us explore our days (Sharma 2014).The Internet can be an excellent study resource, and is progressively being utilized by advanced education understudies in the wellbeing and social consideration areas, however the major disadvantage of utilizing Internet based assets is the issue of finding great quality data from inside of the boundless measure of data accessible (Bond, Fevyer& Pitt 2002). Access is one of the most standout issues regarding the usage of the internet. Students must have PC and Internet access. Hence, they will meet with troubles when innovation is not generally at this very moment it ought to be and Internet access is not generally accessible (Vu 2005). Wireless technology is rapidly picking up a toehold on numerous grounds as intends to accomplish portability and "anyplace, at whatever time" access (Boerner2002). For a millennium, universities have been viewed as the principle societal centre point for learning and learning. And for a thousand years, the fundamental structures of how colleges produce and disperse information and evaluate students have survived in place through the clearing societal changes made by innovation the movable-sort printing press, the Industrial transformation, the broadcast, phone, radio, televisions, and computers (Anderson 2012).
Statement of the problem
The study aims to know the disadvantages of Internet in learning of engineering students. Questions:
1) What are the disadvantages of Internet in learning of engineering students? 2) What are the impacts of internet through the learning of the students? Assumptions:
1) The researchers assume that there are disadvantages of Internet in relation to learning of the engineering students. 2) The researchers assume that even though Internet is very useful, there are still disadvantages of it. 3) The researchers assume that the questions will be answered after the conducted survey.
Significance of the study
Students and Children
It is essential for a student to know certain disadvantages caused by internet for us to be aware of the “Do’s and Don’ts in...
