For the last few years school teachers in Malaysia have access to ICT tools in their schools. However, these tools are used mostly for record keeping and word processing purposes. An in-depth study to identify the problems of using ICT in the classroom is currently being done to elicit information concerning the needs of secondary school teachers in the Northern region of Malaysia. This research-in-progress paper discusses the needs analysis phase of the study. The teachers were asked to identify their needs in becoming competent users of ICT in the classroom; the result from this study will be used to create specific topics that will be made accessible on-line to be shared by teachers in Malaysia. The ultimate aim of this study is to develop reusable instructional material in the form of learning objects.
