Abstract

The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has acquired immense prominence in the field of education over the last two decades. Many past researches have revealed that students accept technology easily, but implementation of the same by the teachers has been inconsistent with the requirements. This paper aims to analyse the critical factors which influence the use of technology in higher education by teachers inside and outside the classroom, with focus on differing attitudes of teachers towards use of technology for education. Moreover, at the time of the paper being written, most of the countries in the world were going through Covid-19 lockdown which has made us realise that use of technology is not optional anymore - it is THE only means to impart education in such situations where physical classrooms are not a possibility. For the purpose of this paper, data from primary as well as secondary sources was generated and analysed. The results indicate an overall positive attitude of the teachers in using ICT, but a lot more needs to be done to overcome the challenges.
