Lecturers use technology for teaching to make learning more interactive and meet the different learning needs of students to promote their learning outcomes. The use of technology by lecturers will achieve the global trend of student-centered learning, where the course curriculum, pedagogy and type of technology should be focused on the needs of the students. To achieve meeting the needs of the students in a class, lecturers adopt technology such as interactive boards, learning management systems, videos, webcam to deliver their course content. However, the appropriate technology must be adopted for the topics in each course and used based on the rules and regulation referred to as ethics.
