The current model for learner/candidate support at the National Centre for Work Based Learning Partnership (NCWBLP) at Middlesex University, London – England uses a one-to-many structure. One advisor interacts in a supervisory capacity with one student in a face-to-face meeting, telephone conversation or email exchange. This is a time intensive process for the advisor. A shift to a web based model is in the pilot stage. This involves two major changes:
* The adoption of a virtual learning environment and associated tools (i.e. – WebCT and web video conferencing),
* A shift to a peer-to-peer virtual network of collaboration and support. The difficulty arises in designing a virtual learning environment (VLE) that can accommodate these changes.

The VLE Denouement toolkit ( is offered as a solution. This online software system is used as a mediation device between the web based learning environment designer and the work based learning advisor/e-content provider. It helps to produce a profile of the virtual learning environment in context of:

* E-content,
* E-communication,
* Telepistemology (online epistemology),
* E-management.

The measurement criteria for the profile is the degree in which autonomy is supported in the online learning design. This poster will highlight some of the representative case studies produced in profiling NCWBLP modules that were converted into web based delivery.
