The UKeU is being 'restructured'. After a fairly massive investment of cash (£62m) the UK's flagship higher education e-learning venture had enrolled a total of 900 students. Not surprisingly the UKeU has found stiff competition from conventional universities who are also offering their own e-learning courses. Well what did they expect?

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) is now intending to refocus on “the development of e-learning in universities and colleges”.

UKeU reportedly spent £10 million on developing their learning environment.
