The successful integration of a VLE requires essential pre-existing conditions. This paper focuses upon the practicalities of integrating a VLE into a programme of learning. The discussion is based upon recent case studies of practitioners who have introduced a VLE into their teaching, and the conditions they identified as essential prior to implementation and thereafter. The research established that such introduction requires a transparency of purpose and an acknowledgement by all stakeholders that new and flexible working practices will be necessary. Such practices need to be promoted in an environment of trust in which issues concerning ethics, protocols and best practice are debated within the context of a community of enquiry. Such debate should inform the progressive integration and development of ICT across each institution.
