The purpose of this study was to explore faculty attitudes about the use of instructional technology in the metropolitan college classroom with the goal of developing a theoretical framework on those attitudes. The researchers found that faculty have concerns about the ability of instructional technology to enhance student learning. Furthermore, many professors still view instructional technology simply as a tool for information dissemination and not as a networking medium.
