Resumé

In this article, we will discuss the potential of ICTs in terms of developing the concept and practice of internationalisation of higher education. Based on a number of Danish and international cases, it will be argued that ICTs are being used as tools in the process of developing the concept and prac-tice of internationalisation of higher education. Why this is not happening to a broader extent is discussed and it is suggested that a clear, strategic anchoring of such efforts, including the proper support services, the parti-cipation and ownership of faculty, staff and students, and clear financial prospects may be necessary in order to successfully apply ICTs for internationalisation purposes on a broader scale. Finally, it is highlighted that more research, studies and documentation of practice in this area, not least in a Danish setting, would be beneficial to develop and broaden the concept and practice of internationalisation.
