Investigating the knowledge, attitudes and habits of academic users regarding computer usage policy

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Academic organizations typically require individuals using their information technology resources to agree to follow a set of rules regarding usage of those facilities and resources that the organization sets out as its computer usage policy document. Users may have to read a document, agree online via web script or be held to the policy by a statement in the institution's calendar. But, regardless of this, what do they actually know about the document's specific contents, what attitudes do they form toward the policies set out there, and how are both reflected in their actual usage of the facilities and IT resources? In this study I attempt to address questions of this kind based on responses from an online survey of users at the Concordia University College of Alberta.
