Abstract:

This study aims at investigating Moroccan university students' access to ICT tools and internet connection, their frequency and purposes of ICT use and their perceived benefits of ICT use in learning English. The data have been obtained by means of a quantitative study. Research findings indicated that access to ICT tools is still limited among the respondents. Access to internet connection within the respondents’ universities was also found to be inadequate. Furthermore, the study revealed that the respondents’ use of ICT for educational purposes is limited. On the other hand, students' perceptions towards the benefits of ICT use in learning English were found to be highly positive. The findings of this study were discussed and compared to the findings of other related studies.
