This chapter introduces networked collaborative e-learning as a specific model of e-learning. It argues that any e-learning event or course is underpinned by a set of educational values which determine the design of that event, and that networked collaborative e-learning is underpinned by a belief that e-learning communities and identity formation are central features of this form of learning. The author believes that an understanding of the educational benefits and theoretical constructs of this form of learning will inform our practice of e-learning and point to new areas of research in this new and emerging field.
