This paper explores a number of issues arising as a result of the impact ICTs are having on the educational landscape. Of note is a suggestion that the emphasis on research should shift from the use of corporate intranets as a means of supporting collaboration and partnership towards an understanding of its potential to help manage knowledge sharing. In the light of the pressures and challenges universities have experienced in recent times, the organization of ICT innovations in the universities is currently under review in many countries. In describing the various ways in which ICTs are being used in Kenyan public universities, this paper creates a keen impression of the kinds of benefits that can accrue from virtual collaboration and highlights the rationale for knowledge management through use of intranets. It intends to arm top management and policymakers with research-based knowledge on how best to use the technology in the new era of information economy and knowledge management.
