Abstract

This paper aims to explore the potential of certain Future Studies techniques to provide insight into the question of the impact of higher education Information and Communication Technology (ICT) strategies on student learning. The approach is to consider three case studies of new universities in different countries, and to identify the main features of their ICT strategies, related variables, key change drivers, and trends. Models representing ICT strategy and dimensions of student learning are then drawn together to product a number of possible scenarios and testable hypotheses. Recommendations for refining the analysis are highlighted.
