    E-learning involves new technology for higher education, and may be defined as an information system (IS). It may also enable entry to new markets.. This study asks if the implementation of e-learning is strategic for higher education institutions (HEIs), and how HEIs are changed or transformed by e-learning. A multiple case study using high and low performers with similar strategic positioning is adopted. The findings confirm that e-learning can play a transformational role for HEIs if implementation results in network redesign.
