Abstract: This case study examined the state of development and diffusion of use of technology in a rural university in southern Africa. It demonstrated that while the levels of interest, utilization and motivation for the use of technology in the teaching practices of the academic community might be regarded as relatively high, there is clear evidence for the need for improvement, from both a pedagogical perspective and in the way educational technology is used to deliver course content. It also highlighted opportunities for improvement in some areas related to ICT services, where these services were being offered, such as in computer laboratories.
