The purpose of this research is to examine the effect of integrating the mobile and CAD technology on teaching architectural design process for Malaysian polytechnic architectural students in producing a creative product. The website is set up based on Caroll's minimal theory, while mobile and CAD technology integration is based on Brown and Campione's technology of learning theory. This study utilized a quasi-experimental method. Final semester students from four (4) polytechnics were used as research samples where sixty (60) students are in the treatment group and another sixty (60) students are in the control group. The final products being evaluated by the experts in architectural field using an instrument based on Creative Product Analysis Model (CPAM). The inferential statistics namely T-Test and Pearson Correlation Analysis with a significant level p = 0.01 were utilized. Research outcome shows that there is a significant difference between the treatment group product (M=79.1) and control group product (M=70.5). It also shows that there is a significance correlation between CPAM creative model details and the final product designed using mobile and CAD technology integration where r (unique) = 0.905, r (practical) = 0.857 and r (details) = 0.758. This research contributes to the use of real case in the development of an architectural website, in the use of mobile technology as media information sources, the use of CAD technology in designing process and in the construction of validated instrument which is used to evaluate creative architectural products.
