In the last two decades technology changed the way of learning and teaching a great deal. In Germany a nation-wide study examined the impact of Web 2.0 onto the studying process. Unfortunately, only on-campus students were included in this survey. Out of experiences and research results in the field of e-learning it is well-known, that technology based learning is especially interesting and often of great impact for distance students. Therefore, we decided to accomplish an own research survey about the effect of Web 2.0, especially community usage, on distance students to find out the students current needs. The results of this study revealed important needs of the distance students which could lead to a new understanding of e-learning not only in distance education, e.g. the value of learning management systems for students. This paper compares the outcome of the two studies in relevant areas and gives then valuable suggestions for Web 2.0 usage in e-learning surroundings.
