Abstract

This article reports on ongoing work at the five universities in
northeastern England, Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria,
Sunderland, and Teesside. In common with many universities, all
five have been engaged in the process of evaluating and implementing
online learning environments. During the 1999-2000
academic year the authors organized a series of meetings to share
information and experience. From these meetings and other
activities the group identified a set of issues and criteria that
they felt needed to be addressed to inform the decision making
process. This article will report on these. The process is, of
course, ongoing with all of the institutions having elaborated
implementation strategies. The article will also report briefly on
these decisions. However, it is perhaps significant that the four
universities that have, at the time of writing, chosen a VLE have
independently chosen the same one, Blackboard.
