The use of ICT for education delivery has become a reality both in the developed and the developing world. The purpose of our research work is to find out use and support of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Virtual University of Pakistan to deliver distance education. A research framework was developed with the help of literature review of the different approaches of technology use in distance education, hybrid/blended approach and learning management system. By applying qualitative research methods, we conducted five semi-structured interviews on the basis of research framework with the employees of Virtual University of Pakistan to collect empirical data. From this research we came to a conclusion that the integration of ICT with the hybrid model has become a significant factor of the success of Virtual University of Pakistan.
