Abstract

Despite most Japanese university students having access to computers and the internet, there are anecdotal reports of these students having very low levels of computer and internet literacy. In order to gather empirical evidence to either confirm or refute these reports, a computer literacy questionnaire was administered to 103 Japanese university students at three universities in the first month of the 2011 academic year. This article reports on the respondents' perceived levels of computer and internet literacy, software use, skills, and knowledge.
