A joint Dutch-Scandinavian distance education project, part of the DUSC Programme, was carried out from November 1999 to the summer 2001. The aim of the project was to develop a module to train lecturers in how to develop a course based on using the concept of collaborative learning in distance education, and to test and evaluate the module. In the developing process, the authors themselves, from two different countries and four different faculties, went through a collaborative process, exploring different aspects of communication and collaboration at a distance. The main communication tool was the asynchronous German BSCW system, but also the synchronous tools NetMeeting and videoconference, and face-to-face meetings were used.
