Abstract: It is worth mentioning that the use of instructional technology in particular affects positively the students’ content acquisition. As well, it plays a great role in enhancing the class performance [Baylor and Ritchie, 2002]. For instance, Beggs (2000), states that the use of technology itself in education is not the big point or the main issue. Instead of that he focuses on using it in an effective way that leads to the advancement of learning and meets the students’ interests and abilities. However, if we compare today's' modern life with the past, we will find out that in the past people didn't use to be familiar with the use of technologies especially in the field of teachers training at the Palestinian traditional universities. In other words, the traditional universities in Palestine suffer from a lack of enough awareness and suitable infrastructure in employing the technology in education. The study comes out to highlight and clarify in what manner business teachers employed instructional technologies at these universities. As well, it provides a clear distinction between teachers who employed the modern technology and between the traditional ones who were described as reluctant and worked against adopting the IT in education. Moreover, it determines whether the characteristics of business teachers participates in the prediction of teachers adopter groupings.
