Abstract. For a large part of e-learning offers available on the Internet today there is often an obvious lack of distinct pedagogical approach. Being an on-line teacher demands a lot of reflection on how to construct and run courses on the net. Worldwide there are trends to move from the traditional way of disseminating information and instruction to students, to facilitating a more socio-cultural way of constructing knowledge. Initiatives towards new pedagogy and for collaboration between universities to develop and exchange courses and to have joint degree programmes, are challenges that force institutions to rethink and revise their strategies. Examples in this paper are picked from the mENU project, proposing a Model for a European Networked University, with joint study programmes and courses, applying the new pedagogical approaches. The model points out obstacles to be overcome and attempts a common quality assurance system across institutional and international borders.
