Abstract

Even though we don't have hard evidence that by using information technology (IT) we can enhance learning, there are many areas related to delivery of education that can benefit by the use of IT. In the projects we have done, we used IT to enhance access to information, facilitate deep learning and also to provide intelligent tutoring. In each case, the feedback we had from the students has been very positive. Due to many difficulties, it is hard to quantify the benefits resulting from the use of IT for delivery of education. In this paper we highlight some of the possible benefits at a conceptual level.
