Abstract

This paper argues that what universities need at present is an informed direction and vision about the current impact of information and communications technologies on learning in relation to the design and management of information, electronic teaching content, how knowledge is constructed online, how such a vision ties in with both face to face and online learning, and how these factors as a whole ultimately contribute to the long term viability of universities as educational providers. It is increasingly clear that online learning is growing in strategic importance for higher education institutions world-wide. It is also clear that resolving related issues and meeting emergent needs such as individualised online content delivery and facilitating creative online knowledge construction extend well beyond just supplying technology and related infrastructure. The aim of this paper is to draw attention to the core factors that have already shaped the future direction of higher education throughout the world.
