This chapter examines the management of the complexities of e-learning courseware in the context of the Developing e-Learning for Teachers (DEfT) project, a two-year collaboration between the School of Networked Education (SNE) at the Beijing Normal University (BNU) and the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) in Great Britain. It evaluates the practicalities of developing collaborative working relationships, explores the sociocultural dimension of a number of the project's small cultures, and uses the Activity Theory and Boundary Crossing as theoretical frameworks to explain how the complexities of e-learning courseware production can be effectively managed.

Keywords:   e-learning, courseware, DEfT, School of Networked Education, Beijing Normal University, Worldwide Universities Network, Activity Theory, Boundary Crossing, project management
