The objective of this study was to investigate the perspectives of pre-service and in-service teachers in the College of Education (COE) at Kuwait University (KU) on the use of online streaming media services as a facilitative and innovative tool for teaching, learning, professional development, and teacher preparation. Five research questions were used to compile a questionnaire and to guide analysis of the data. Various descriptive methods of analysis were applied to the collected data (e.g., frequencies and percentages to summarize the demographic data; means and standard deviations to address the research questions). The study revealed that the participants' awareness of the availability of such services is low (M = 2.49; SD = 0.57). However, their attitudes toward online streaming media as an innovative tool for teaching, learning, professional development, and teacher preparation were significantly positive among all subgroups, with a high mean score (M = 4.5213, and SD = 0.27707). Thus, online streaming media prepares teachers and students alike for a voyage of imagination and discovery. No school can afford to be without this tool--a gateway to a new world of educational possibilities.
