The utilization of information and communication technology (ICT) in open and distance education is very important. Universitas Terbuka (UT-The Indonesia Open University) gradually began developing and using ICT applications for a variety of purposes, both academic and administrative. In academic services, UT provides learning materials specifically designed for independent learning. The students can utilize learning materials provided by UT through the internet such as online tutorials (tutorial online-tuton), web supplements, internet television (I-TV), and online independent exercises (LMOnline). The objectives of the research were: (i) to describe students’ attitude in using information and communication technology in open and distance learning, and (ii) to describe the relationship between the students characteristics and their attitude in using information and communication technology in open and distance learning.
