Integration of Digital Technology and Higher Education among College Students By M. Devika and Dr. T. Sivasakthi Rajammal


Integration of Digital Technology in higher education refers to using digital technology to enhance the college student’s learning experience. Digital Technology integration can also refer to the application, database, and programs used by an educational institution for present and future references. Technology Integration is defined as the use of digital technology and its applications to enhance and support the educational environment so students can complete their assignments. It supports students’ education to improve education quality. For this reason, the current study’s discussion of digital technology integration in higher education is important. The study’s sample strategy is stratified random sampling, and the research design follows the normative survey approach.  432 college students—202 men and 230 women—from several government, government-aided, and private institutions across Chennai’s rural and urban districts as well as the Kancheepuram district form the sample.  The present study employed a one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and a t-test to analyze the data gathered. From the findings, female college students have more interest in integration with digital technology and education when compared to male college students. Compared to urban college students, rural college students use digital technology in higher education more frequently. When it comes to how college students use digital technology for higher education, there aren’t many notable differences between government, government-aided, and private colleges. By incorporating digital technology into higher education, college students can improve their digital literacy and use it to further their education, preparing them to be strong future leaders of our country.
