Higher Education tries to meet the call for openness and internationalization, moving (parts of) its learning-environments from brick and mortar universities to virtual learning environments. This implies a different and higher heterogeneity and requires an awareness and consideration of underlying and often unconscious cultural differences in understandings of learning and knowledge. “Throughputs” (like interaction, communication and interrelations) become more important than inputs (expert-knowledge) and outputs (skills and competences) and require theories, approaches, and concepts that go beyond mere technological solutions to make throughputs visible and to enable enhanced processes of learning.
