Abstract

With the rapid development of sophisticated technologies, many innovative e-Learning tools or applications with increased interactivities and improved features have been adopted in tertiary institutions. This paper serves as a platform for industry and academia to exchange higher education practices in innovative course and programme design.We investigate current practices in tertiary institutions with e-Learning technologies and applications to enhance academics’ teaching excellences and research capabilities in order to achieve social, cultural, environmental, or economic impacts. In particular, we investigate all public universities and one private college in Hong Kong in terms of various e-Learning technologies. The results demonstrate that all these e-Learning technologies for being used in higher education help to enhance teaching and learning experiences, andmake itmore efficient and effective. Students can also benefit from these e-Learning technologies to become life-long learners.Moreover, by taking a closer look at current e-Learning technology trends, we list some possible e-Learning applications and tools that are expected to surge in the coming years.
