The Internet and associated tools have now been used in education for more than a decade. This period coincides with a dramatic increase in participation in higher education (HE) which is likely to continue given the Government’s widening participation aim to increase participation in HE to 50% by 1010 (DfES, 2003). ICT is seen by many as one means of supporting this and as an essential element in delivering higher education efficiently and effectively to a diverse, mass audience. This chapter will reflect on the increasing impact of technologies on education and consider the ways in which tools are being used and how they are changing practice.
