* Background
A number of developments have enhanced the role of technology in education, 
apart from the reducing cost of bandwidth and computing equipment:
- The growth of the Internet

multimedia as well in text form
- The move by leading universities to make their course material, in many 
cases including video lectures, freely available
- Progress of standardization - going as far as the use of shared ontologies 
and metadata in machine processable form to describe content
- The enormous impact of games on youth
- Recognition of Technology Enhanced Learning as a necessary component of 
education at different levels. of education at different levels.

A variety of technological developments have made it possible to let a huge 
user population benefit fully from the above developments, such as the 
semantic web, ubiquitous and mobile access to Internet resources, and digital
