INTORDUCTION:Throughout the world, Marketer and Consumer Buying Behavior (CBB) are changing the face of education. It has been argued that the, if a marketer can identify CBB, he or she will be in better position to target products and services at them. Just as computers are about to replace books (some would argue this has already happened) as our main source of information globally, computers will come to occupy the central position in education once occupied by books. The Internet was initially developed by the US Defense Department and was at one time only popular within the research community. Its ability to share information across organizations and to interact with people at low cost has gradually enticed other sectors to explore its use. Today, the Internet has an impact on every facet of our life including business operation, education, communication, entertainment, social activity, shopping, and so on. Many universities around the world are expanding their investment in information technology (IT), and specifically the Internet, and are actively promoting Internet use. From a student’s perspective, learning using online tools is multidimensional. It may entail a multitude of variables such as prior student knowledge of IT, experience in its usage, perceptions of IT usage, computer competencies, and background demographics. The Internet is one of the greatest recent advancement in the world of information technology and has become a useful instrument that has fostered the process of making the world a global village. The Internet provides several opportunities for the academia. It is a mechanism for information dissemination and a medium for collaborative interaction between individuals and their computers without regard for geographic limitation of space. The word Internet is derived from two words: “international” and “network”. The Internet therefore can be defined as an international computer network of information available to the public through modem links so internet is a worldwide system of linked computers networks. The Internet is the world’s largest and most widely used network. It is an international network of networks that is a collection of hundreds of thousands of private and public networks all over the world This is an era of information technology. Pakistan is also trying to cope with this IT revolution. In this regards special steps are being taken and efforts are being made to spread internet all over the country. According to a recent statement of our science & IT minister that now internet is available in about 800 cities of Pakistani compared with India who have internet facility in just 600 cities. This is considered as a great achievement and it is. But here is a question that availability of internet all over the country at low rates guaranteed development? Do our people know the use of internet for development purpose? It is a fact that the ratio of informative and educational sites in the total is very low. 12,000,000 internet users as of December, 2006;
7.2% of the population, according to PTA.

Structure of the System in Pakistan:Education is organized into five levels: primary (grades one through five); middle (grades six through eight); high (grades nine and ten, culminating in matriculation); intermediate (grades eleven and twelve, leading to an F.A. diploma in arts or F.S. science; and university programs leading to undergraduate and advanced degrees. Preparatory classes (kachi, or nursery) were formally incorporated into the system in 1988 with the Seventh Five-Year Plan. Academic and technical education institutions are the responsibility of the federal Ministry of Education, which coordinates instruction through the intermediate level. Above that level, a designated university in each province is responsible for coordination of instruction and examinations. In certain cases, a different ministry may oversee specialized programs. Universities enjoy limited autonomy; their finances are overseen by a University Grants Commission, as in Britain.

Teacher-training workshops are overseen by the respective provincial education ministries in order to improve teaching skills. However, incentives are severely lacking, and, perhaps because of the shortage of financial support to education, few teachers participate. Rates of absenteeism among teachers are high in general, inducing support for community-coordinated efforts promoted in the Eighth FiveYear Plan (1993-98). In 1991 there were 87,545 primary schools, 189,200 primary school teachers, and 7,768,000 students enrolled at the primary level, with a student-to-teacher ratio of forty-one to one. Just over one-third of all children of primary school age were enrolled in a school in 1989. There were 11,978 secondary schools, 154,802 secondary school teachers, and 2,995,000 students enrolled at the secondary level, with a student-to- teacher ratio of nineteen to one. Primary school dropout rates remained fairly consistent in the 1970s and 1980s, at just over 50 percent for boys and 60 percent for girls. The middle school dropout rates for boys and girls rose from 22 percent in 1976 to about 33 percent in 1983. However, a noticeable shift occurred in the beginning of the 1980s regarding the post primary dropout rate: whereas boys and girls had relatively equal rates (14 percent) in 1975, by 1979-- just as Zia initiated his government's Islamization program--the dropout rate for boys was 25 percent while for girls it was only 16 percent. By 1993 this trend had dramatically reversed, and boys had a dropout rate of only 7 percent compared with the girls' rate of 15 percent. The Seventh Five-Year Plan envisioned that every child five years and above would have access to either a primary school or a comparable, but less comprehensive, mosque school. However, because of financial constraints, this goal was not achieved. In drafting the Eighth Five-Year Plan in 1992, the government therefore reiterated the need to mobilize a large share of national resources to finance education. To improve access to schools, especially at the primary level, the government sought to decentralize and democratize the design and implementation of its education strategy. To give parents a greater voice in running schools, it planned to transfer control of primary and secondary schools to NGOs. The government also intended to gradually make all high schools, colleges, and universities autonomous, although no schedule was specified for achieving this ambitious goal. hi, or nursery) were formally incorporated into the system in 1988 with the Seventh Five-Year Plan.

PROBLEM STATEMENT:Pakistan is under developing country and is lack of planning in different sectors which directly link to the success and betterment for the country. The main area which needs to be focused is the new and improved method of education. The population of Pakistan is roughly between 167 million and unemployment rate is getting high day by day. The purpose of a proper education is to help a child become an independent adult Pakistan needs to implement high specialized knowledge or try to impose the World Wide Web in education sector as well as in daily life. At that point of time Pakistan does not have advanced equipment like computer technology professionals this is one of the main reason why Pakistan is still facing problem is education sector. And if we see in our daily life when ever we buy any thing we don’t have much information awareness about any thing what is food what is wrong just because we don’t have proper knowledge of using WWW.

OBJECTIVE OF STUDY:The main and important objective of this study would be improvement in education system get awareness in common man. Www itself a new world of information, entertainment, and everything and is far just on one click. By introducing www in specialized education system let’s say in universities where one gets knowledge that leads towards his career. World Wide Web gives a unique power that differentiates literate from illiterate. It shows everything is possible in this world nothing is difficult NASA the touch the moon because the know how to use World Wide Web efficiently. Pakistan has talent have everything it is just a unique push in education sector by implementing the internet with education that help is research of any kind of subject with proof by different engineer and doc they had been working on that. It make them realized that this is the time of globalization what others are doing and where we stand. Lets take the education sector in Rawalpindi has more the 6 universities offering different kind of education but the their primary objective would be using specialized knowledge during studies (internet) and they know the effect of that as well Now if we see in our daily life we come across in different situation where we need some choices some help any information regarding any product and services if we just use mind we have availability of miracle know as world wide web it gives different alternatives different choices for everything. Now lets talk about entertainment life is getting dull bore day by day same thing same routine different tensions that makes life tough life needs some relaxation.

The specific objectives were to: Identify attitude of students toward IT. Determine the purpose of internet usage for students. Find out the intensity of internet usage by students. Evaluate that whether the use of internet improve the academic performance of students or not

SIGNIFICANCE OF STUDY:This study could be beneficial for student as well as for institutions. The valuable feedback from 500 students should help student to realize the benefits of internet in their education. Institutes can invest more in internet facilities to enhance the performance of their students and produce better results. Based on Pakistan’s experience, international readers may take advantage from this study work.

Impact of computer technologies on learning outcomes
A number of studies have explored the impact of computer-based technologies on learning outcomes and reported on some improvements to student learning outcomes. Denton and Manus (1995) who analyzed standardized test scores of students from 8 schools using computer technologies found that only some schools showed improvements but this was not evident in all subject areas. Follansbee et al (1996) found that students with online access produced Better projects in terms of presentation, integration of different perspectives and presentation of a full picture. Chessler et al (1998) found that teachers reported a higher quality of work from students who used laptops than those who didn’t. Tierney et al (1996) found that over time students who use computers begin to explore and express ideas in fairly sophisticated ways using graphical and other non-linear forms. Williams (1999) found that sixth graders who worked in a hyper media supported context were able to solve problems more effectively than those who didn’t. Richards (1996) who surveyed teachers found that they reported on improvements in their students reading, writing and team skills as a result of using computers.

After implementing WWW in education all the passed out from the universities would be determined toward their goal / aims. The education and power of World Wide Web have taught them how how to survive in this difficult world. It gives extra knowledge to deal with different environment you can see the things in a broader way in the depth/ root of the problem then you chose the strategy against that. “It’s a good saying that you have education you are like a solider without gun have knowledge of World wide web is like a complete solider with everything” World Wide Web is an essential part in every stage of life it put the brightness in the person. Using internet in daily life gives extra benefits to any one because world is very large lot of things we come across we don’t what exactly it is for knowing all these things which seems impossible in this world make that possible by World wide web regarding information etc One of the big advantage of World Wide Web in your life is it won’t let you bore it is a good way entertainment fun you can watch the movies songs chat a lot of thing it has to entertain you with in this fast moving world.

LITRATURE REVIEW
Advancement in technology brings major impacts on education (Underwood 2003).Many universities around the world are expanding their investment in information technology (IT), and specifically the Internet, and are actively promoting Internet use in university education (Al-Nuaimy, Zhang & Noble, 2001; Bargeron, Grudin, Gupta &Sanocki, 2002; Chandler, 2002; Chen & Paul, 2003; Dringus, 1999; Huang et al, 2004;Kinshuk, 2002; Owston, 2000; Pahl, 2003; Richardson, 2003; Rovai, 2001). Instructors are being requested to make their teaching materials and other supporting resources accessible through the Internet (Alavi, 1994; Barker, 2002; Coppola, Hiltz & Rotter, 2002; Lee, 2001; Topper, 2002).Students are encouraged to communicate with instructors, owith one another, via email. As universities promote Internet use, they need to understand their students’ attitudes towards using it (Frank, Reich & Hum-phreys, 2003; Milliken & Barnes, 2002) Product information leads to wards right decision to be made ( Alavi, save time save money effort as well internet give a wise move in daily life about any particular problem.
