    Abstract

    What’s changed? This case study explores the complex story of how a regional university is changing its delivery systems for teaching and learning to serve the growing needs for tertiary education of students living on thousands of small islands in the Pacific Ocean. It traces the history of the foundation of the university by 12 island nations and its use of communications technology. It examines the complex challenges the university faces in its quest to harness all the advantages of information technology to deliver first-class tertiary education.
