The first government funding initiative to establish computers in a small number of key UK universities took place just fifty years ago. Since those early days of mainframes for research, the cost of technology has fallen in real terms. Computer Systems have been transformed by advances in processing power; networked communications; and the unimagined accessibility of information via the internet and the World Wide Web. Computer systems have been harnessed for education, however the levels of penetration achieved by educational technology has not matched the ubiquity of technology in everyday life. The reasons for this gap may lie in structural components of higher education whereby circumstances and working practices associated with the wider agendas of institutions may inadvertently impact upon this aspect of educational practice. This paper reviews the progress of educational technology from an organisational perspective derived from of studies in a six UK higher education institutions.
