Abstract This article argues that previous attempts to survey the use of technology in vocational education and training in Australia have been based on broad descriptors such as online learning and e-learning. These lack definitional clarity rendering the results open to wide interpretation. The article reports on the development, administration and analysis of a survey to determine the frequency of use of 21 functionalities by 116 vocational education and training teachers. As might be expected, some functionalities are used more frequently than others. The article explores the patterns of use frequency and proposes that the criteria of newness, complexity, compatibility and locus of control are influential in determining how frequently the respondents use e-learning functionalities.
