The population of this research comprised of 3500 respondents and the sample size was 346 respondent of Automobile Technology Education in the public tertiary institutions offering Automobile Technology Education in the North Eastern Nigeria[24].The model was tested via Sequential Equation Modelling (SEM) illustrated with a good goodness of fit from the factor loadings shown by the initial and final measurement model and indicating regression weights of the revised model. The findings can be useful in identifying dangers and benefits of using technology mediated learning tools, Online instruction for blended learning presents new opportunities for teaching and learning and Online instruction using technology mediated instruction enhance social connectedness in teaching and learning of automobile technology. This demonstrated that appropriate adaptations to online technology for professional development can provide practical, accessible means for a wide range of issues which is relevant and effective continuing education.
