Abstract: Implementing learning solutions in diverse environments can be very challenging due to a range of organisational, cultural, technological and pedagogical issues. This is particularly the case in relation to the development and implementation of virtual campus projects and initiatives in which courses are often provided to students across international boundaries and cultures. This roundtable will report on the work of a European Commission DG Education and Culture co-financed project ‘Promoting Best Practice in Virtual Campuses’ which is aimed at providing a deeper understanding of the key issues and success factors underlying the implementation of virtual campuses and e-learning. The roundtable will explore through interactive debate a model of key issues underpinning best practice in virtual campuses and e-learning.
