         Challenges for the future

• Coordination
   • with other courses at our college
   • with the other studios

• Technical support available at any time

• In progress:
    • Chat rooms
    • Professional support from the lecturers
      available through the web-side
    • International network for clinical nursing and
      nursing research
                 Conclusion

• Web-supported learning environment has become a
  success, and the students have achieved greater
  computer-literacy

• MCU has been used with good results and positive
  evaluation

• With these experiences as a background, Bergen
  University College will continue to apply these
  tools in course-offers

• The pilot project has become a national success,
  and we hope to achieve an international
  cooperation on this field in the future
