Facultad de Informatica Mazatlan (MEXICO)
This investigation analyzes the impact the use of Internet has had on the university students’ learning, especially in the Computer Science Faculty in Mazatlan (FIMAZ) with the last 10 generations of Computer Science graduates.

The main objectives this investigation will discuss are the incorporation of Technologies in the educational process, in theoretical teaching, in methodology and the importance of analyzing changes in elaborating, acquiring and transmitting knowledge to the students of FIMAZ.

The different theories this investigation are based on are the problems FIMAZ faces with the actual impact of the use of internet in education, globalization and the challenges it has with itself.

The use of Internet in FIMAZ has experienced a significant progress in the last few years. The frequency in which Internet is used nowadays is a lot greater than it was observed in the previous years.

According to the results obtained in this investigation through surveys and questionnaires, FIMAZ’ percentage of graduates has increased tremendously which is due to the fact that students have constant and daily access to computers and Internet.

Internet has provoked new attitudes as well as changes in the educational process. According to this new teaching method/aid, learning isn’t necessarily teacher-centered. Students can be their own teachers and classroom teachers’ roles are to guide their students’ learning. Both students and teachers convert themselves in information assessors which is basic for cooperative learning.

Although the importance of internet in education is undeniable, when used in an isolated way, there is no guaranty of significant learning.
