This research investigates Teaching Faculty’s (TF) adoption and usage of the Interactive or Smart White Board Technology (SB) in UAE University (UAEU). The developed theoretical framework is based on the technological innovation theories and is made of different socio-technical factors. Using survey research targeting UAEU’s TF, the research findings suggested that the model was partially supported but posited interesting insights pertaining to TF’s adoption and usage of SB. Contrasting findings pertaining to certain factors across both adoption and usage provided both absorbing and challenging insights. Implications arising from significant and insignificant factors lead to a conclusion that SB usage is still evolving amongst TF in UAEU.
