Abstract: In this paper, the authors discuss on the integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in teaching and facilitating (TaF) Malay Literature where it plays an important role in keeping with current educational developments. Through the Malaysian Education Development Plan 2013-2025 (Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan Malaysia 2013-2025) it appears that efforts to increase ICT in education in preparation for generating human capital that ICT literacy need to be further enhanced. Furthermore, the country is facing severe challenges in its efforts to provide a quality education system. The main objective of this study was to identify the TaF method practiced by the teachers of Malay Literature and how they integrate ICT in TaF. The study was conducted in three selected schools in Negeri Sembilan which offer elective Malay Literature in the fourth grade. A semi-structured interview method for six teachers was conducted. Questionnaire techniques and observations during the TaF process were also implemented. Studies have found that various applications such as Kahoot, Nearpot, Powtoon, Google, animated creativity, audio materials and interactive games have simplified and furthered the TaF method of Malay Literature teachers and made it more effective and engaging. In addition, the animated app was found to be able to attract students to continue their TaF activities in the classroom. This is because animation is a set of graphics that is quickly displayed in a series of frames or objects. It would not be too much to say that TaF Malay Literature-based TaF could transfer information from a static textbook to a pattern. Based on the transformation in the TaF method that the teacher was trying to apply, the study found it had a positive effect. This is because the confidence and success of teachers in integrating ICT in TaF has increased the interest and enthusiasm of students in the subject of Malay Literature.
