The promises of e-learning for transforming tertiary education and thereby advancing the knowledge economy have rested on three arguments: E-learning could expand and widen access to tertiary education and training; improve the quality of education; and reduce its cost. The study evaluated these three promises with the sparse existing data and evidence and concluded that the reality has not been up to the promises so far in terms of pedagogic innovation, while it has already significantly improved the overall learning (and teaching) experience. Reflecting on the ways that would help develop e-learning further, the study identified the development and investment model as the way forward.
