    This paper summarizes the results of an analysis of the impacts of adopting information and communication technology (ICT) solutions in a learning context. The analysis is based on a literature survey of articles reporting research cases studying the impact of adopting ICT based solutions in various learning contexts. The subject has been reviewed using the term blended learning that can incorporate both e-learning and m-learning approaches, as the boundaries between the various ICT solutions have become increasingly blurred. The focus of the study is on adult learning contexts. The contribution of this paper is to summarize how researchers evaluate and show the impact of adopting ICT in learning, and what the critical factors contributing to the success of ICT based solutions in learning are.
