Abstract

Technology offers the opportunity to change the roles that teachers and students have traditionally played. With technology dispersing information, teachers are free to coach and facilitate students learning. With technology monitoring, students become active and effectively acquire new skills. Educational access to ICT tools, applications, networks and media worldwide has grown dramatically. Students use technology tools to enhance learning, increase productivity, and promote creativity. Students use productivity tools to collaborate in constructing technology-enhanced models, prepare publications, and produce other creative works. Overall attitude of Student Teachers and Teacher Educators was high but attitude is based on certain factors.  Major factors were availability and access of Internet.  Besides this awareness about the benefits of new communication technologies, access such as computers and connectivity, the language barriers in using Internet and motivation to use information available on the Internet are also considered as the factors affecting the usage of online education.
