    Abstract

    The aim of this study is to investigate which scenarios are emerging with respect to the use of ICT in higher education and how future developments can be predicted and strategic choices can be based on that. It seeks to answer the following questions:
    • What strategic responses do institutions make with respect to the use of ICT;
    • Which external conditions and developments influence these choices;
    • Which external and internal conditions and measures are taken in order to
    achieve strategic targets;
    • What are the implications for technology use, teaching and learning processes
    and staff?

    The study applies an international comparative methodology and is carried out in the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom, Australia, Finland and the USA. Data were collected through Web-based questionnaires tailored to three different response groups: decision makers, support staff and instructors. In total 693 persons responded to the questionnaire. This implies that between 20 and 50 percent of the institutions in the various countries responded (institutional data were also gathered), with the exception of the USA where the response was much lower.
