Educational technology has been widely adopted to support students’ learning. However, existing literature provides fractional pictures of the current adoption and expectations of educational technology in hospitality programs in higher education. This study examines the perspectives of hospitality management students on educational technology adoption, its advantages, their concerns and expectations regarding the integration of educational technology. The findings reveal flexibility as the main advantage of educational technology, while the need for stronger self-motivation is the main concern. Students expect more adoption of multimedia in education, while the current adoption of social software suffices their expectation. Also, different technology adoption is recommended to satisfy lower and upper classmen respectively.
