We invite teachers, system administers and researchers who interest in ICT integration and/or produced successful models of ICT application in open and distance education. In order to discuss lively and fruitfully, we introduce a case study of the University of the South Pacific (USP). USP established in 1968 and is jointly owned by the governments of twelve countries. USP is the only university of its type in the world and offers programs through distance and flexible learning in a variety of modes and technologies throughout fifteen USP campuses. USP operates a system that delivers programs via a satellite based at first two way audio communication system and now grows to a modern ICT based network (USPNet). In 2010 educational and technical services of the Japan-Pacific ICT Centre on Laucala Campus in Fiji began enhancing utilization of USPNet and improving the quality of higher education in all twelve USP member countries.
