Abstract

An information communication technology (ICT) significantly assists the acquisition and amalgamation of knowledge, offering developing countries unprecedented opportunities to enhance educational systems. ICTs are influencing all aspects of life, more significantly our environment. To gauge the effectiveness of raising awareness regarding domestic solid waste management (SWM) within the society using computer aided tools (CAL), the present research was carried out. Using CAL, chances of spreading effective environmental awareness would be tremendous. The study was conducted to find knowledge of college students with respect to SWM by using developed communication methods. Sample study was conducted with 50 students. Preliminary data was collected by using questionnaire, before and after employing CAL tool and analyzed by using ‘t test’. Development of effective knowledge regarding SWM using multimedia package is guiding factor in this project. The findings suggest that CAL tools were effective in raising knowledge of students regarding SWM.
