Abstract: Universities and colleges have responded to the emergence of new millennium learners by fostering technology adoption in course teaching. Affordable technology is used in an online environment because multimedia tools have become cheaper to produce and more accessible to users. These tools help create a sense of presence in the courses: instructor presence, social presence, and instructional presence. They have a positive effect on student understanding because instructions can be viewed by students as many times as they need. Integrating technology into instruction tends to move classrooms from teacher-dominated to student-centered learning environments. The focus will be on technology that is easy to use, readily available, and of little or no cost to the professor and students.
