This article carries out a relatively focused analysis of a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in an institution of Higher Education from an Actor Network Theory perspective. Such a perspective can help uncover the complex processes that come into play when a VLE is introduced in an organisation, as pedagogical goals, administrative procedures and technological artefacts are interwoven in a heterogeneous web or 'network'. The article identifies new actors that emerge in the traditional teacher-student, teacher-teacher and student-student relationships as a result of the presence and active usage of the VLE. It also describes how already existing actors may change roles or status in connection with VLE use.
