1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The internet provides several opportunities for academic performance and competence among students. It is a mechanism for information dissemination and a medium for collaborative interaction between individual and their computers without regard for geographic limitation of space.
Leiner et al, (2000): Singh, (2002), the word internet is derived from two words; “international” and “network”. The Internet therefore can be defined as an international computer network of information available to the public through modern links.
