In this increasingly globalised technological era, wiring schools are becoming a one of the major challenges in the educational sector in Mauritius. The Mauritius Institute of Education (MIE) recognises the vital role of infusing Information Technology and Communications (ICT) across the existing content, that is, the potential of learning ‘with’ technology as a means for actively engaging and motivating the students in the learning process. The rapid spread of the use of online learning technology in education is somehow forcing academics to redefine their teaching strategies by adopting new innovative tools and practices. In this context technology is viewed as a major part of any educational innovation if it is used as a tool to enhance teaching and learning.
