Computer Science education is becoming a fundamental teaching area with the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) development. It is a known fact that traditional educational and ENUM (Electronic Number Mapping) is powerful protocol that maps telephone numbers to Internet Protocol addresses. It allows users with IP-enabled devices to locate and call friends or families across the Internet, bypassing the ordinary telephone system and thereby cost no more than the rental already paid for the Internet connection. Other benefits include unified address offering and easier communications management. The main purpose of this paper is to study the feasibility of ENUM in Malaysia. The roles of academic institutions, ENUM model and way to conduct ENUM closed trial in Malaysia will be highlighted. Issues of ENUM are also discussed.
