A case study for FELDA community

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper discusses the impact of the implementation of a computer project, JENii, to residents of Federal Land Development Authority (FELDA) Chini Timur cluster settlement in the State of Pahang, Malaysia. JENii computer is a product at trial stage at public level design by Malaysian Institute of Microelectronic Systems (MIMOS). JENii project aims to reduce the digital gap among rural residents. JENii uses touch screen with built in wireless broadband. The first part of this paper discusses on literature review and theory of digital inclusion. The second part discusses about issues and methodology of the research. The third part discusses on impact of JENii to improve computer usage skills among the housewives and senior citizens. This study uses empirical methods based on quantitative and qualitative data. The study found that the technology helped to eliminate technofear among the samples. The applications and internet access among the samples recorded at moderate level.
