The paper deals with the question of government policy in Malaysia. In particular, it investigates the specific context of what the Malaysian government has been doing to promote IT, multimedia and e-learning strategies in universities. Malaysia's international IT ranking by the Economist Intelligence Unit (2005) suggests that the Malaysian government has not been idle in promoting the development of the k-economy that Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed envisaged in 1991. The question is, how has this policy been translated into the university sector? How much has MOHE (Ministry of Higher Education) been involved in promoting e-learning? How far is MOHE related to MIMOS? This paper will describe the analysis and approaches undertaken by the Malaysian government to promote IT education and will offer a critical view of the policy implementation.
