Information technology was introduced in the curricula at the Norwegian Regional Colleges in years 1965—1975. New Regional Colleges were established all over the country. In this period, we experienced the rapid development of minicomputers and the Norwegian company, Norse Data AS, played an important role in supplying suitable equipment for the educational market. This development was very well supported by the governmental policy in the fields of education and IT.
