Abstract

The increasing impact of digital technologies on educational institutions is widely acknowledged, and this now encompasses Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in developing countries as they follow the developed countries in their new technology adoption for their education activities and systems. In Libyan universities, the use of digital technology is still in the early stages of development. This initial report from this study focuses on the deployment of digital technology and related applications, in particular Cloud computing, in higher education in Libya. The paper highlights the difficulties faced in the planning and implementation of digital technology strategy, and subsequent analysis will put forward a checklist of activities to support strategy development and implementation within Libyan universities. A case study approach entails interviews and questionnaires conducted in three Libyan universities as a pilot for data collection. The provisional findings highlight the areas that need be considered and addressed for digital technology deployment in the learning and teaching processes, including technology infrastructure, curriculum development, human activities, cultural and language aspects, and management support. The study will also develop a plan for the integration of digital technologies into Libyan higher education.
