The aim of this paper is to discuss evaluation of 'networked learning' and to ask some fundamental questions about the validity of, and the practicalities involved in, evaluating this new and unexplored mode of learning. Networked learning as understood here describes a learning activity involving the use of a web-based networked learning environment. The underlying assumption in this paper is that the involvement of such a tool changes the way the learning environment and the learning process are experienced. It will be argued that networked learning requires a definition of learning environments in order to appreciate the full impact of this type of innovation in learning and to enable appropriate and effective evaluation. The Extended Learning Environment Network project (ELEN) is presenting a model for evaluating learning environments and networked learning and the project hopes to encourage the application and discussion of this model by the wider academic community.
