In today's internet-enabled era, the learning processes of students are not effective without the integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into the learning practices. This study aimed at identifying the impact factors of ICT on learning processes of the students enrolled in different private universities of Bangladesh. A total of 277 respondents were chosen through convenience sampling and were interviewed using a structured questionnaire. The results obtained from Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) divulged that eight factors integrated students' learning processes and the use of ICT. Subsequently, five factors were found to be significant through multiple regression analysis. Among the eight factors identified, the role of factors for training skills and willingness of Information Technology (IT) staff and internet-based communication were further corroborated using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) analysis. This study concluded that ICT facilities of the private universities significantly influenced the effectiveness of learning process of the university students.
If the authorities of the private universities in Bangladesh would emphasize upon improving the aforementioned factors, the overall learning process of the students would become more effective and could lead to better academic performance thereby.
