Networked educational management has emerged as an effective, distributed management approach for managing educational technologies and e-learning in educational institutions. This management model has been developed during the writer's doctorate research and implementation of e-learning (also referred to as networked education) at Massey University, New Zealand, as well as on consulting assignments over the last six years including a five-month consulting engagement at Cape Technikon, South Africa. Networked educational management has found its widest syntagmatic expression or manifestation at the University of Botswana where the writer has been leading the university-wide implementation of modern educational technologies and e-learning since early 2001. This paper describes this syntagm or practical manifestation of networked educational management and concludes that networked educational management, as a new educational management paradigm, has promising features for addressing the need for client satisfaction within higher education while also ensuring that strategic imperatives of the institution are being fulfilled.
