eLearning will revolutionise higher education in the next decade. Although this has likely been said regularly over the last 20 years, the widespread availability of mobile devices, ubiquitous wifi connections, and the globalisation of industry, driven by global networking infrastructure, will finally deliver the promises of learning anytime anywhere. This chapter reviews the most common forms of eLearning, both synchronous and asynchronous: recorded lectures, learning management systems, online assessment, blogs, and wikis are slowly transforming education towards a student-centred model of learning. The question remains: what is the university's business model when students can collect their learning resources for free from iTunesU?
