Vol 37 (2009)

Volume 37 contains eight regular papers. In the first paper, Lunat seeks to understand the dialectic relationship between domination and resistance in the redefinition and reinforcement of Palestinian students’ use of ICTs to achieve desirable freedoms.

In the second paper, Diaz Andrade and Urquhart discuss how the proliferation of the Internet has resulted in a cultural homogenisation via the lingua franca of the Internet, English. They consider the case of Latin American Internet portals in order to illustrate how local content provision on the Internet can be successful in attracting a local audience.

In the third paper, Acklesh Prasad uses a structurational lens and an ethnographic approach to interpret the use of technology in organisations in developing countries, focusing on success factors.

In the fourth paper, Dahawy and Kamel consider active and pasasive learning and teaching techniques in the context of undergraduate programmes in Egypt.

In the fifth paper, Hatakka assesses the potential for reuse of open content in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, paying particular attention to inhibiting factors.

In the sixth paper, Prompattanapakdee investigates the adoption and use of personal internet banking services in Thailand.

In the seventh paper, Kuppusamy, Raman and Lee analyse the impact of ICT investments on economic growth, focusing on Malaysia.

In the final paper, Kuppusamy, Raman, Shanmugam and Solucis identify and discuss the critical success factors associated with the use of IT in Islamic financial institutions.
