This study aims to explore how lecturers’ perceptions about technology integration into online teaching and learning differ depending on their differences in age, gender, teaching experience and IT level in the context of the e-learning system of Hochiminh City Open University. An online questionnaire was delivered to individual emails of 101 lecturers operating at least one online subject. The results showed all the university online lecturers strongly consent that computers outweigh traditional face-to-face teaching methods. Nevertheless, insufficient guidance on how to properly and productively combine IT into lectures is their greatest of concern. Next, teaching seniority and gender – two personal attributes – are so useful indicators for selecting most appropriate online instructors, however IT certificates. Those all intensively credit for the university management to properly build-up IT capacity for their teaching staff within their online learning system.
