Session: Professional Training

In this paper we present a critical overview of an experiment in collaborative teaching/learning using Web-based tools. Collaborating institutions were the University of Art & Design in Helsinki, Finland, and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, USA. Graduate level students attending different (but with substantial overlap) courses in Finland and the US were connected using Future Learning Environment (FLE) developed at the Media Lab of University of Art & Design.
