Abstract:

The study was conducted to assess the knowledge level of the teachers working in the University of Agricultural Sciences Bangalore and this university consists of 4 campuses viz., College of Agriculture GKVK, College of Agriculture Hassan, College of Agriculture Mandya and College of sericulture, Chintamani. Population of the study consists of teachers, researchers and extension personnel working in UAS-Bangalore. Proportionate random sampling method was employed for selecting the sample. Thus the total sample size was 45. Ex-post-facto research design was followed. Data was collected through personal interview method and using questionnaires. Findings of the study revealed that as high as 40.00 per cent of the teachers belonged to medium knowledge level category. About 16 per cent of assistant professor belonged to medium knowledge category compared to professor (13.33%) and associate professor (11.11%). Further, results showed that the ranks assigned to the different dimensions based on percentage of scores obtained by the respondents viz., Tools and peripherals was assigned I rank while mobile applications and programmes were assigned II and III rank, respectively. Correlation analysis showed that age, service experience and awareness had significant relationship with the knowledge level of teachers on ICTs. The stepwise regression analysis revealed that the information seeking pattern, rural urban background and mass media exposure put together expressed 83.30 per cent of variation in knowledge level. Comparison of beta values revealed that information seeking pattern had significant and highest effect on knowledge level of teachers. There is great potential to improve the knowledge level among teachers on ICTs at UAS, Bangalore.
