Being on the verge of yet another ICT "revolution" we are seeing other ways to learn, gain information and communicate. Social media and mobile devices such as tablet computers and smart phones have the potential to help bring new and exciting changes to higher education. Unlike before, Asian countries are more ready and excited with these developments. Malaysia, for example, has designated e-Learning as a critical agenda in both public and private higher education institutions. The Ministry of Higher Education wishes to see e-Learning succeed as one of the learning approaches and it is hopeful that with reducing infrastructural and technology costs, e-Learning will lead to ubiquitous learning in the next decade. However, for the success of any agenda, implementation is key. A model for the implementation of 21st Century learning is crucial in providing a framework that will contribute towards effective use of mobile technologies. The model as well other implications will be part of Zoraini's presentation.
