This paper reports on the innovative development of e-learning in criminology and criminal justice programmes that were designed in line with the current ethos of learning and teaching in the Higher Education Academy. The criteria for best practice, the advantages and potential barriers to implementing or adopting such an approach to teaching are highlighted. The paper then discusses the experiences of our students who have participated in virtual collaborative work with students in other jurisdictions and geographical locations in the UK and the US. It concludes that while there are many beneficial outcomes for students and staff in this learning and teaching experience it does need to be supported in the academy if it is to continue to be viable.
