The key findings of investigations concerned with e-learning computer systems and the establishment of a technology framework for a new generation of applications are described. The paper initially discusses an e-learning system that incorporates the infrastructure of the Global Campus (GC) programme. It is reviewed in light of four studies on attitudes towards learning, patterns of Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) use, Computer-Assisted Assessment (CAA) and learning tasks and patterns of communication. Finally, a set of guidelines and a technology framework for the classification and the evolution of e-learning applications are proposed.
