Abstract: Indonesia has recognized the growing demand for information technology, with the most rapid adoption of this technology being amongst its young people. Within the perspective of a balanced knowledge information society, the adoption of technology is crucial for improving social development in developing countries and is considered a particularly important tool in education. The education sector is well-placed to harness the potential of ICT for the millennial generation in these societies. Based on a survey of students enrolled in a university in Jakarta, this study attempts to identify the learning and development opportunities available through digital technology by exploring both how university students in Indonesia use this technology, and how they experience and perceive the benefits of digital learning. In particular, we examine how their access to and use of technology is associated with their digital literacy and their perceived usefulness of ICT. In general, Indonesian university students are actively engaged in a number of diverse activities online, including educational activities, which in turn result in increased online learning outcomes. A better understanding of the role of digital literacy and learning environments and effective use of technology for learning can provide important insights into education and technology use in Indonesia and similar contexts.
