The need to enhance the teaching of business education courses necessitated this study. The study determined the extent of utilization of intranet/teleconferencing in teaching business education courses in tertiary institutions in Anambra State. One research question guided the study and one null hypothesis was tested at .05 level of significance. Descriptive survey research design was adopted and the population of 113 business educators from five tertiary institutions that offer business education programme was studied without sampling. The instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire containing 7 items and validated by three experts in the field of business education and measurement and evaluation. Pilot testing was used to establish the reliability of the instrument and Cronbach Alpha was used to test the internal consistency of the instrument which yielded coefficient of .93. One hundred and seven (107) duly completed copies of the instrument were retrieved and used for the study. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research question and determined the homogeneity of the respondents’ ratings while the t-test was used to test the hypothesis. Findings revealed that business educators in Anambra State utilized intranet and teleconferencing in teaching business education courses in tertiary institutions at a low extent. Gender did not significantly influence respondents’ mean ratings on the extent they utilize intranet/teleconferencing in teaching business education courses. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher concluded that the extent of utilization of intranet/teleconferencing in teaching business education in tertiary institutions in Anambra State is still low. It was therefore recommended among others that; authorities of tertiary institutions should periodically organize conferences, seminars and workshops on intranet/teleconferencing utilization skills for the benefit of the business educators.
