Abstract

The study was conducted in Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar. Acomprehensive
and detailed pre-tested questionnaire was used for collecting information. Fifty per cent of teachers from each college
were selected randomly in sample. Total 120 completely answered questionnaires were received. The respondents were
asked to express the constraints in the utilization of educational technologies. The mean score for a particular constraint
was worked out by dividing the weighted score of the constraints by the total number of respondents. The ranking of
constraints was done according to the mean score of each statement. Lack of technical support was perceived as most
important constraint. Other important constraints were lack of maintenance of existing facilities; lack of funds; lack of
supporting hardware and software; and lack of periodic reviews of the digital learning materials. Majority of the important
constraints are related with infrastructure and administration.
