Abstract: 'A report on an interdisciplinary e-course experiment on language, literature and culture in the Indian Diaspora.

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'.
