The Internet has its roots in the higher education system of the U.S.A. The Internet was initially developed as a tool in sharing research and significant efforts are being made to apply the Internet as a means of instruction. However, for the Internet to become a significant tool in higher education, an examination of its use is in order.
This thesis contains the results of a quantitative survey involving faculty at a mountain state college. The survey measured Internet use for teaching and research, as well as obtaining demographic data from participating faculty. The demographic variables were then correlated with responses on the use of the various Internet technologies.
After compiling the data it was discovered that there were few statistically significant differences between the “hard sciences,” and the “soft sciences” and humanities. The difference in use based on rank and year of last degree was statistically insignificant, as was gender.
