The coming of new Information CommunicationTechnologies (ICTs) has prompted muchcontroversy in higher education. Scholars andadministrators have been excited by thepotential - perhaps the threat - of the'virtual' university. But whilst much has beenwritten about 'virtual higher education', lesshas been said about the actual 'work' involved.Drawing upon insights from the sociology oftechnology, this paper reports on the attemptsof one university to reconcile ideas about'virtuality' with the more established networksand infrastructures of traditional universitylife. This research is based upon aparticipant- observation study carried out inthe UK. © 2002 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
