In this paper we will develop the following hypothesis as it relates to the field of educational technology in higher education: students, teachers and educational institutions are all concerned with a common underlying "learning model". The organization of these various levels (students, teachers, institutions) around learning may be considered as a guide and as a sign of an expected educational quality. In this case, the general models for learning and for pedagogical setup development may be used to develop new teaching or training methods, to promote innovation in institutions and to assess quality. After a short presentation of a "objectives - methods - tools " reference model, we will use this model to organize and to assess the question of the added value of ICT in learning. These factors of learning enhanced by ICT define a learning model consistent with learning factors as proposed by education sciences. The deduced learning model will then be used to understand and to foster teacher training and innovation in institutions.
