This article discusses design, development and implementation of electronic learning environments for collaborative learning. Development in society and business, and related changes in higher education and lifelong learning require educators and educational designers/technologists to rethink education. These changes cannot simply be responded to by adding technological solutions implemented according to existing educational approaches. Instead, an integrated view on e-learning is necessary, characterized by the combination of pedagogical, technical, social, and organizational factors.
