Moving debates about ICT and higher education beyond a simple focus on e-learning, this book takes into consideration the provision of post-secondary education as a whole.
Discussing what is meant by e-business, why e-business approaches are relevant to universities and colleges and the key issues this raises for post-secondary education, this book:

  • examines emerging technologies and provides examples of what an e-institution for education might look like
  • explores what can be learnt from e-business in re-defining the relationships between enterprises and their users and in developing processes to improve services and competitive advantage
  • considers how to improve administrative efficiency, implement faster access and response to information, enhance skills and knowledge development and improve the student experience
  • examines technological innovation and integration, leadership styles, risk assessment and cost-benefit type analyses, re-designing existing organisational frameworks, techniques for overcoming barriers to change and successfully implementing change and the types of technologies required for an e-integrated educational provision
