The objective of this study is to identify the Ely’s Variation (Conditions of Change) - 1999, which exists to support the integration of ICT. The sample consists of VAE major students - semester 5, 6, 7 and 8, who have attended the course. As a result of the fish bowl draw for choosing the population capable of governance, a total of 223 VAE students from 6 ITE in Peninsular Malaysia have been selected for this study.  The respondents come from these institutes: 1) IPGK Bahasa Antarabangsa (9.0%), 2) IPGK Dato’ Razali Ismail (9.0%), 3) IPGK Raja Melewar (25.6%), 4) IPGK Pendidikan Teknik (9.9%), 5) IPGK Ilmu Khas (13.5%) and 6) IPGK Sultan Mizan (33.2%). From the 223 (100%) sets of questionnaires distributed, 213 (96%) sets have been successfully analysed. The study uses a questionnaire survey method. The questionnaires consist of 6 items (Demographic Information of Respondents) and 40 items (Ely terms, 1999). The reliability of the instruments for integrating ICT according to Ely’s requirements is 0.86. Data is analysed using Mean (M) and Standard Deviation (SD). The findings indicate the existence and support the integration of ICT through the T&L process. The 7 conditions specified above are of varying stages. The third term, which is the Resources Readiness, obtained (M = 2.37, SD = 0.73), indicating that the existence of this condition is somewhat less supportive of the integration of ICT. It can be concluded that the VAE students thought that they did not have sufficient resources to enable them to integrate ICT through the T&L process of Creative Multimedia in Visual Art Education courses in ITE.
