In order to get a good idea of important factors in this transition and how institutions are dealing with this challenge, discussions were held with experts from six institutions. The findings were converted into six case studies. This issue examines characteristic components of the vision on education that recur within many institutions, and how these components affect the organisation of the learning environment. The second section explains the role of didactical issues. The third and final section provides an overview of the main do's and don'ts.
This issue is intended for administrators, managers, educational experts, IT experts and policy advisers in the field of education and ICT who are working on or involved in developing and organising a digital learning environment.
