This paper reports on collaborative partnership strategies to set up a New Technology Institute (NTI) virtual campus in Kent. Since all H/FE education providers from a dispersed geographical area were involved, there was some difficulty working effectively with many organizations. A natural advantage inherited by the NTI was, however, a history of good regional networking, comprising the kinds of common purposes previously identified in distributed communities of practice. The KNTI capitalized on this shared ownership. Together, the partners undertook collaborative actions to ensure effective implementation of the NTI, negotiating to overcome potential difficulties. The paper identifies a range of partnership strategies to recognise the importance of social presence in communities when building a virtual campus. These were found to be helpful in forming the KNTI. Situated actions to build collaborative engagement in an H/FE community of practice for a virtual campus continue to need face-to-face social participation to support e-communication.
