Investigating Students’ Digital Citizenship Practices for Undergraduate Students at Al-Qunfudhah University College

Dr. Ali Abdalrhman AlZebidi, Dr. Dhaifallah Saleh Alsuhaymi.


This quantitative study explores the extent to which students at Al-Qunfudhah University College, a branch of Umm Al-Qura University, have practiced digital citizenship skills. A proposed scale was designed for this study based on Ribble’s nine dimensions of digital citizenship. Two-hundred and sixty-four students were involved in this investigation and completed an online questionnaire. Performing Exploratory factor analysis confirmed the convergent and discriminant validity of the questionnaire. The nine extracted factors explained 69.49% of the total variance. The results showed that a high percentage of students at Al-Qunfudhah University College practiced all nine digital citizenship skills. The results also showed that there were no statistical differences between students’ digital citizenship practices regarding their gender, age, or academic level, but there was a statistical difference between students’ digital citizenship practices attributed to their daily usage of electronic devices.

Key words: digital citizenship, Al-Qunfudhah University College, Ribble’s dimensions, Umm Al-Qura University
