Future Potential of ICT Implementation in University Education in Jordan

Abstract

The emerging information and communication technology (ICT) has become a strategic alternative for universities all over the world to enhance learning and deliver both quantity and quality programs. The status of ICT infrastructure in Jordan is investigated through a number of core indicators to identify the underlying factors which emerge as serious obstacles to the progress of university eEducation. Findings show that Jordan has made a good progress in international ranking in both the networked readiness index, to stand 44 among 104 nations, and the digital access index with a position of 78 amongst 181 economies. An online questionnaire has also been conducted to probe university academics perceptions on the utilization of ICT as a tool in university teaching. Results show that a large majority of respondent professors make advantage of the internet in making presentations and lectures, preparing lessons and preparing teaching materials. However, almost twothirds of professors do not receive any training on ICT before or during their teaching career and that the main area where ICT training seems to be essential is web page design.
