Advancements in information technology allow learning to take place anytime and anywhere. The changes in technology demand changes in the way education is being arranged as well. The answer has been increased involvement of information technology in all stages of the learning process, which has been known as eLearning, or more recently as mLearning. The discussion around eLearning and mLearning reflects the skills needed in the modern labour market, and it highlights the importance of technology in the modern society. Consequently, there are significant pressures to develop of learning environments that use modern technology.

The key issue in learning is direct interaction between teachers, students and student groups - and this interaction should be powered with information technology. In this paper we look at the role of technology in learning, pressures to implement it in the learning process. We also discuss expectations of information technology in learning context.
