This paper presents the results on students' expectations and instructors' usage of ICT during instruction in a Kyrgyzstan-Turkey Manas University. Data were collected from 57 instructors and 477 students from different faculties of Manas University. Results show that there is discrepancy between students' expectations and the rate of instructors' use of ICT during instruction. The most important barriers of technology integration according to instructors are the lack of in-service training about ICT, lack of technical support, lack of appropriate software and materials for instructors. As enablers of technology integration are that in-service training about ICT should be improved in quality and quantity, more budget should be allocated to ICT, technology plans for implementing ICT in universities should be prepared, specific units and personnel should be allocated to peer support, and specific units and personnel should be allocated for public use of ICT tools. The results of this study can be generalized to the Kyrgyzstan- Turkey Manas Univesity, since it presents the situation with ICT from both instructors' and students' perspectives.
