This paper highlights the further prospects of media-based learning; in particular the affordance of web-based communities intending mutual learning and personal development. The core of the paper presentation is about the MICC "Migration, Identity, Culture and Communication" project in which multicultural meetings between visitors and their ethnic homeland are facilitated with both virtual real artistic environments. As extrapolations of these study objects a more visionary exposition will be given on the longer-term effects of so-called concept-oriented communities for sustainable understanding and emotional attachment. The role of 'Digital Communities' will be taken into account.
