There is no denial that developing countries have long-standing problems of education due to their scarce resources for providing education facilities to their masses. The provision of education for all and continuous education is impossible for these countries because they cannot afford to establish educational institutions filled with teachers and teaching facilities for every single citizen as available to the masses of developed states. Fortunately, ICTs are opening new opportunities for the developing and poor states to start planning and implementing digital opportunity initiatives and thereby address their problems including education. eLearning is emerging as a panacea for the issues of education for all, lifelong learning and globally compatible education. The purpose of the paper is to bring together the threats and opportunities, attached with digital initiatives, available to the developing countries and plot the findings into a compact theoretical model for guidance and further research.

 

Key words: Educational-technologies, virtual-learning-environments, education-for-all, lifelong-learning, and continuous-education
