|Abstract||Most of the higher-education institutions today are grappling with issues associated with upskilling their staff to enable them to make efficient use of new technologies in their teaching. The pressure for this comes from many sources including employers who are demanding graduates with generic as well as domain-specific skills, from students themselves who expect to be using technologies in their learning and from institutions that want to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by the new delivery methods. Semantic web-based education has become as ubiquitous as the Web is today but is not yet a reality. At the moment, it is a futuristic vision founded in current developments in Internet technologies and the semantic web in general. This paper describes a possible strategy by which a university can support, encourage and sustain technology uptake in teaching and learning. Also, the paper explores the notion of providing teachers with access to, and skills in the use of, technology-based learning tools whose design and use are derived from learning needs, and proposes a teaching strategy for MSc in Business Information Systems.|
