dc.description.abstract This study aimed at investigating the status quo of using computers in teaching by faculty members at Mutah University in Jordan. To attain this goal a questionnaire was constructed and distributed to collect the data. The sample of the study consisted of (106) of the faculty members who were randomly selected. The findings indicated that faculty members used computes mainly for typing, it also showed that the most important motives behind using and learning computers is “the benefits of computers for the major”. As for the use of computer software and their applications, the findings indicated that word processing and electronic mail were the most commonly used software among the users. The findings also showed statistically significant differences due to the interaction between the specialization and the academic rank in using computers in teaching, whereas no difference was shown due to the specialization or the academic rank. In addition, no statistically significant differences were shown due to the specialization, academic rank or the interaction between them in estimating the importance of using computers in teaching. The two main problems that prevent faculty members of using computers were the teaching load and lack of incentives. The most important recommendations were to conduct training courses and to decrease the teaching load for faculty members. en_US
