Integrating ICT is a hot topic in higher education, in the Netherlands,especially at the University of Twente, the only residential university in the Netherlands. The University of Twente (UT) is profiling itself as a “Telematics University”, a university where telematics applications (or ICT) support, enrich, and improve current education and provide more flexibility in course delivery. Two examples of instructional support for instructors are available at the University of Twente. The first example shows the way a faculty is supporting its instructors in a large-scale project, the TeLeTOP project of the Faculty of Educational Science and Technology, in which all first-year courses are re-engineered so that education becomes more efficient, more enriched, and more flexible via innovative and appropriate applications of telematics, particularly WWW-based tools and environments. The second example of instructional support can be found at the University’s Educational Centre. The Educational Centre is strongly involved in staff development and innovation projects at the UT, not only in the field of ICT in teaching and training, but also in student-centred education and curriculum development.
