The field of IT encompasses all computer software, hardware and related devices employed in the processing, transfer, storage, and dissemination of data whether it’s on a computer, smartphone, TV or other medium.

Over the ensuing decades, many corporations created so-called "IT departments" to manage the computer technologies related to their business. Whatever these departments worked on became the de facto definition of Information Technology, one that has evolved over time.

Today, IT departments have responsibilities in areas like computer tech support, business computer network. As a ground-breaking publication, the two-volume International Handbook on Information Technology (full title) synthesizes the major issues and directions of research in the field.

One major focus of the Handbook is the design and potential of IT-based student learning environments. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a major challenge to our educational system.
