This paper examines how the accelerating spread of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in developing countries can be correlated to an increase in the potential for the implementation of e-learning programs and pedagogies. Using data from a University of Washington team’s 2008 landscape study of public access venues, as well as a review of literature in the fields of ICT and e-learning, this document surveys the progress of Latin America and analyzes useful directions for research within and across the topics of e-learning and ICT.
