Virtual campuses : a solution ?
Looking backwards :
 Internal communication
Multiple ways of communication
(email, forums, online notices,
…) misused
 Information management is
weak
 E-learning
 Often limited to on-line version
of syllabi
 Oriented, presented & perceived as
a technical/informatics project
 Few merging between social &
technical issues
 Restricted investments in
training

 Virtual campuses started in
1995 -2000
 Usually proposed services :
 News platforms
 Pedagogical platforms
 Files repositories
Relation to information have changed
 Internal communication  tool of facilitation of the
regulation of the institution
 Multiple information editors
 Internet users become information contents
generators
