    Samenvatting

    Information Technology (IT) education, when adaptive to the market demand, can contribute towards the development of IT in a country. The contribution of IT education to the economic growth and sustainable development of a country is seen in the quality and spread of IT industries. It has been observed that there is a gap between the IT knowledge provided by universities and the knowledge required by IT industries to improve the level of IT in many countries. Adaptive Course Development (ACD) using IT-aligned learning objects was proposed as a solution to this. A framework is required to help such a process. Proposed framework for ACD takes into account the IT capabilities of a university in IT education, the specific attributes of academic subjects demanded by the IT industries and the availability of experts in IT industry and the universities.
