Abstract 

The digital age has seen exponential growth in the power of information and communications technology (ICT) and has transformed our lives. Education is no different. To the extent that higher education continues to adhere to traditional methods of teaching and learning, it is becoming increasingly out of step with these modern developments. This paper examines the author’s 17 years experience of using ICT to enhance learning in law and suggests that while ICT poses a challenge for tertiary educators, it also offers many opportunities.

Keywords: ICT in education – millennial students – effective learning environments
