NIE has also defined a basic e-learning platform that allows fast and user-friendly access for building online courses. This platform is professionally supported by a team of instructional designers and resource/content materials developers. In the building up of online courses, NIE has adopted a ‘learn together’ philosophy, where academic staff members picked up basic online skills together with the support team. To ensure that the technical aspects of the course delivery are well taken care of, NIE has invested strongly in the technical infrastructure for the e-learning platform adopted. Recognising the need to be able to translate and integrate established ICT into teaching and learning, NIE has actively engaged in ICT in education R&D. The primarily aims are to explore the possible uses of the various emerging technologies, such as the use of WAP over GPRS for discussion purposes, and to define ICT-enriched teaching and learning environments of the future.

This paper will end by discussing the various possible future trends in the use of ICT for teaching and learning, particularly when applied to life-long learning.
