The primary purpose of this quantitative study was to examine how student perceptions of the frequency of use and usefulness of instructional technology aligned with faculty perceptions of the same technologies in general education courses in a large community college. This study replicated the research conducted by Moseley (2010). This current study extended Moseley's research by including faculty member age as a research variable. The demographic of student and faculty member gender is examined as well. The findings of this study revealed that students perceived lesser usage of instructional technologies in the classroom than faculty members; students perceived instructional technolgy to be less useful in helping them learn than compared to faculty members; and that female faculty members, more than male faculty members, perceived that instructional technology was useful in helping students learn.
