Abstract [en]

The use of ICT in higher education is becoming increasingly widespread. InSweden, it is possible to study courses on university level in a distributedlearning context, using locally placed learning centres (LC). The aim of this paperis to identify implications in order to manage and improve the conditions fordistributed learning in higher education. Our conceptualisations of distributedlearning are faced in the real work environment at four different learning centresin Sweden. A case study with 11 interviews was conducted. The results showthat a LC promotes socialisation as well as technical and administrative support.Communication on organisational and pedagogical levels between LC, universitiesand students are however not satisfactory. Thus, we argue for the importance oflearning centres as mediators to facilitate a locally constructed learning context.We suggest a management strategy for improving such context
