In August 2007, the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia (MOHE) launched The National Higher Education Strategic Plan with the intention to trigger higher education transformations. The plan outlines seven strategic thrusts that form the basis of national higher education development through 2020, one of which is to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Having committed to the plan, e-learning has been identified as one of the Critical Agenda Projects (CAPs) and a National Key Result Area (NKRA) of MOHE. This chapter will present some of the strategies to enhance the use of e-learning implemented by public higher education institutions (HEIs) in Malaysia. These strategies would include the e-learning policy, leadership and governance, infrastructure, staff development provisions and reward structure. This chapter will also examine the roles of the Public Universities e-learning Consortium in enabling the HEIs to work together and collaborate in making e-learning a success.
