As the EDEN Gdansk conference call says, "An organizational culture supporting openness and creativity is a precondition for successful learning and innovation."One of the aims of Northumbria University's Learning and Teaching Strategy is to: "Recruit and retain students and staff drawn from all sectors of the international community, engaging and developing them to their full potential." As regards the Schools within the University, for example, the Newcastle Business School (NBS) website says, with reference to "a truly international experience": At our campus in Newcastle city centre we welcome students from all over the world bringing a rich multicultural diversity to our programmes and social activities as well as the unique opportunity to share broader perspectives. Moreover, in Computing Awards for Excellence 2006, the university was named one of the top three most IT enabled organisations in the UK, by the Journal of Computing. These quotes are particularly apposite with reference to the research reported in this paper, the aims of which was to explore the use of digital and ICT tools available and capitalize on the multicultural diversity of the student body by affording staff and subsequently international students an opportunity to share their knowledge and prior learning experience with the wider community.
