This chapter reports the separate development of English Across the Curriculum (EAC) in three universities, followed by a joint-effort, large-scale, inter-institution project on offering technology-enhanced EAC support to final-year project supervisors and students via a language learning mobile app. Feedback from discipline faculty across a number of departments shows the importance of synergy between English language teachers and discipline faculty for these EAC developments to succeed. Other universities in Asia can develop their EFL students’ academic literacy by adapting EAC to their own contexts.
