Abstract

Human knowledge and intellectual capital are essential in economic growth and social development of a country in knowledge economy, and a higher premium is often placed on education especially on higher education. China and India play significant roles in the globalization of knowledge economy. In this ongoing research study, we investigate how sociocultural factors influence technology adoption in college education in China and India, and observe culture, infrastructure, and policy as three major influencing factors. Particularly, our findings show that in both countries hardware infrastructure is growing, but technical support and management of technology and corresponding issues are behind; China implements push style technology policy while India's policy is pull style; and students of both countries influence the adoption of information technologies in their families especially communication technologies.
