Abstract
Abstract: Information and communication technologies (ICT) have turn into ordinary bodies in all aspects of life. Across the past twenty years the use of ICT has essentially revolutionized the practices and procedures of nearly all forms of endeavour within business and governance. Within education, ICT has begun to have a presence but the impact has not been as extensive as in other fields. Education is a very socially oriented activity and quality education has traditionally been associated with strong teachers having high degrees of personal contact with learners. The use of ICT in education lends itself to more student-centred learning settings and often this generates some tensions for some teachers and students. But with the world moving rapidly into digital media and information, the position of ICT in education is becoming more and more imperative and this importance will continue to grow and develop in the 21st century. This paper highlights the various impacts of ICT on contemporary tertiary education and explores potential future developments. The paper argues the position of ICT in transforming teaching and learning and seeks to discover how this will impact on the way programs will be offered and delivered in the universities and colleges of the future.

Keywords
ICT, learning, tertiary education, transformation.
