Abstract

Nowadays, most university students search for information through the Internet. Internet becomes a popular source of information in completing assignments, projects and other tasks assigned to university students. Besides searching for information, students also should have the opportunity to deliver information through Internet. Therefore, universities are recommended to provide course to develop websites using free web hosting among students. Students were given assignments to develop an interesting website by using free web hosting services. This paper seeks to evaluate the usability of free web hosting among university students as a convenient as well as simple way of fulfilling their needs. This paper also highlights the students’ view on the usefulness, convenience, design and quality of free web hosting. A sample of 200 users was invited by e-mail to participate in the online survey. A total of 119 valid responses were received which represented 59.5 of response rate. The findings of this study reveal that students are satisfied with the usefulness of the system as well as satisfied with the system itself. In conclusion, majority of respondents were ready to use the tools for future web designing tasks.
