The purpose of this study is to develop a list of competencies for the undergraduate level new educational technology course considering material development dimension in Turkey. Also, it was investigated to what extent pre-service teachers in Turkey gained these competencies. A total of 2,460 usable surveys were analyzed. It was found that male and female students received similar scores with similar standard deviations. The results also showed that students’ competency levels in the elementary teaching programs were significantly higher than those in the other teaching programs, except the preschool teaching programs. On the other hand, students’ competency levels in the elementary mathematics teaching programs were significantly less than students’ competency levels in the other teaching programs.
