    In times of profound social change, we need to find ways of managing the learning process. The case study discussed in this paper provides one example of a social and interactive form of learning. Prioritising pedagogical values of collaboration and communication, the model described provides for an international exchange of ideas, resources and viewpoints based on constructivist learning theory. From a small-scale project to one that now supports students from seven universities in the UK and the USA, this example shows how a simple idea can become an enjoyable and productive learning experience for students and staff alike.
