Abstract

This paper present the results of on study based on a questionnaire about the use of ICTs in the environment of e-Learning in Mozambique, having as study object the Catholic University of Mozambique (CUM). For this purpose, 600 forms were sent to the participants (students of CUM) through the Google form. We received back 203 questionnaires, wherein 186 of the sample was selected on a confidence-basis of 90% with an error margin of 5%; The results show that the majority of online students live in provincial capitals and in rural areas and often use ICTs, in daily life as well as for the academic activities. In order to accomplish a quality e-learning there should be taken into account, in addition to the education programmes, the issue of basic infrastructure such as the electric power, the internet access and speed of platforms and the possession of mobile devices connected to network and skills of the end users.
