Keywords:Management Education, usage of ICT, Information and Communication technologies, MBA colleges in Karnataka, E-learning, and Technology enabled education, ICT effectiveness, and Effective teaching process
AbstractAs India moves ahead on the pervasive usage of technology on all spheres of life, our educational institutions cannot be falling behind in catching up with the pace. Karnataka is at the forefront of the technology thrust and it is only natural that the students and faculty members of the educational institutions would aspire to be in the forefront of using Information and communication technologies in teaching and learning. This paper attempts to capture the mood and preparedness of the professors in the Business Management educational institutions in Karnataka through an exploratory study of ICT effectiveness in teaching process. The study extends across eight premier institutions of Karnataka and presents the data from about 500 professors of Management education. The results indicate that approximately more than 50% of the professors are positive about the effectiveness of ICT in teaching but are tentative when it comes to their ability to use innovative tools to improve student learning. This may indicate the need for more awareness and training with provision of required infrastructure and connectivity in the institutions.
