The Seventh EDEN Research Workshop , organised 22-23 October at the Catholic University of Leuven was an impressive continuation of the tradition to highlight bi-annually recent achievements in search of new knowledge in e-learning. With the great support of the University, in particular its Teaching and Learning Department, participants could enjoy the nice medieval rooms, in good atmosphere, promoting collaboration, partnerships and networking. The intensive involvement and contribution of the Leuven students was a good innovation, providing special experience.
