Over the past decades, there has been an intensive drive to implement information and communications technology (ICT) in diverse contexts. In education, ICT has produced significant benefits to research, teaching and learning. Enhanced learning outcomes and effective teaching practices, for example, are reported as positive impacts of ICT integration, particularly in higher educational contexts. However; in order to examine how ICT influences tertiary teaching and learning, it is important to look at the main stakeholders' perspective. This chapter reports a case study about the perceptions of ICT among university lecturers and students on key aspects of leT in an Australian university context. Data was collected through questionnaires and interviews. The major findings revealed that there were wide variations in respondents 'perceptions of ICT's impact, which may partly affect the effectiveness of ICT implementation in this context.
