As computers and telecommunications stretch across the globe and merge into compunications, new opportunities arise for activities that cross national boundaries and become transformed into something never before possible. This chapter provides an overview of one of these activities, which is poised to undergo a fundamental transformation within the next decade — information technology (IT) in education. This chapter first presents an overview of the literature on IT in education, distance education, and the potential convergence of on- and off-campus education. A characterisation of the higher education sectors in Australia and Asia is then presented, as well as the current trend of Australian universities to establish off-shore ties with organisations in Asia to deliver international, “information-age” education. The impacts and opportunities of IT for education in general, for Asia’s emerging economies, and for Australia (as an education provider) will also be examined, along with some initial strategy recommendations.
