    Collaboration and communication has a growing relevance in the process of integration of education within countries and cultures in Europe. In the NetCampus project on networked open and distance learning, problems in realizing collaboration and communication were discussed and structured in a framework. Within the same framework possible solutions were developed for these problems. The framework has the form of a matrix and is differentiated into use in three scenarios for educational collaboration. A series of pilot courses are then developed and delivered to represent these three scenarios. One of these courses is the course ‘Groupware’ which is provided by the University of Twente. Students from four different locations all over Europe attend the course, either on-campus or at a distance. Course delivery, resources and communication methods were given as high flexibility and possible to serve varying needs from learners. The paper discusses the rationale behind the course, the structure, resources and instructional events that were used and problems as encountered and how they were / are being solved in relation to the framework.
