Yousef Ahmad Aljaraideh, Waleed Mahmood Shdooh

Abstract


This study aims at exploring the factors effecting the extent to which information and communication technology (ICT) is used by the teaching members at Jerash University (JU). For this purpose and based on the descriptive approach, a questionnaire was validly and reliably developed and applied to a randomly selected sample of 100 teaching members. A generally high extent of ICT usage was found. Moreover, no statistically significant differences were found in the aforesaid factors due to academic rank; however, they were found to exist in terms of self-efficiency due to faculty. Training courses are necessarily recommended to be held for the teaching members on the usage of ICT within the learning-teaching process.
