Abstract [en]

The increased involvement of technology in all aspects of our lives places educational institutions under pressure to include these aspects at the heart of their learning. This ensures that they continue to be competitive in a constantly changing market with international and cultural links. This study explores the factors that influenced the development of learning through technology at two Jordanian universities, focusing on full-time staff and students. It considers the general attitude towards engaging in learning through technology with outcomes demonstrating that training and development is required prior to implementation to adequately support the learning transition. The organisational infrastructure often presents the greatest barrier to such developments. Informed by the outcomes of the study, a training and development programme has been designed, developed and implemented to support the cultural change and increase its impact.
