Abstract: 'A report on an interdisciplinary e-course experiment on language, literature and culture in the Indian Diaspora. One of the rich potentials of the 'World Wide Web' is to enable international and interdisciplinary projects by utilizing e-learning technologies. Further, contemporary students are used to structuring much of their public and private life and learning around the use of electronic technologies. Certainly, when learning, thinking and working are no longer solitary activities, then traditional notions of teaching must be redesigned throughout our educational institutions in order to meet the challenges of the communication age – language teaching and the humanities at our universities cannot be an. Since the classroom can transcend spatially limited locations, it can transform the 'traditional scene of instruction [...] into a joint venture involving many scholars, including our students as active researchers'.
