Abstract

It is believed that the Interactive White Board Technology (IWBT) ecosystem could provide many pedagogical advantages to higher education institutions. IWBT comes with a portfolio of duplicated hardware components and software features that could intelligently facilitate the teaching process making it more rich and interactive for both teachers and students. In addition, the board's touchable feature makes it more interactive and hence, encourages student's participation and involvement in learning. However, the IWBT is recent and research issues emanating from its use in teaching are limited. Initial insights suggested that aspects concerning IWBT use in the classroom are intrusive to teachers' existing teaching styles which could muster their resistance and hence, undermine the benefits sought from this technology. This research undertakes a more proactive approach and showcases different scenario highlighting the use of the IWBT in teaching different courses for different departments in the College of Information Technology. It is believed that adopting such an approach could, at least, eliminates the initial expected resistance for IWBT and encourages its use amongst teachers.
