Regarding the profile of the students and their habits, learning can be shaped according to students’ life styles and thus the quality of learning and teaching can be increased by meeting students’ needs. The integration of technology affected the language learning positively by offering various activities which can be done inside or outside class in each skill. Thus, mobile learning has the potential to increase the opportunities to make teaching and learning available beyond the traditional classroom. The main aim of this study was to develop a mobile technologies course delivered online and explore the effects of this online course designed on Mobile Technologies on the use of ICT skills, attitudes and views of EFL Instructors. This study is designed according to Mixed method research. In this study, participants were selected through convenient sampling and the data were collated through a questionnaire used before and after the implementation of the online course, semi-structured interviews and class observations. The quantitative data were analyzed through means and percentages and the Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test. The qualitative data were analyzed through content analysis. The results of this study indicated the online training course on mobile technologies had a positive impact on the use of ICT skills and views of EFL teachers in general. Besides, attending the Mobile Technologies Course delivered online was very beneficial and effective for the instructors in that it helped them to develop their skills on the use of mobile Technologies in English Language teaching.
