    "use...of in" or "use of...at"

    Hi,

    I would like to know whether there is a difference between 'at' and 'in' here

    "The use of ICT at higher education and how it affects gender relations has also..."

    "The use of ICT in higher education and how it affects gender relations has also..."

    I feel that the first is incorrect. Am I right? But if it had been "The use of ICT at Harvard..." I would prefer 'at'. However, I have some difficulties formulating the grammatic rule here.

    Use 'in higher education' and 'at' a specific location.
