This article is a comparative study to examine various strengths and pitfalls that can occur in digital classrooms, based on a comparison of two digital classrooms, specifically looking at which aspects of Internet-based learning operate successfully, and which aspects do not operate or function successfully. The results of this research indicate that the 1999 presentation of the RBO course's digital classroom at the University of Pretoria was inadequate in certain areas, but that the modifications made in 2000 improved the course considerably. With these modifications, the study proved that the model works, but that the detail of the model needs fine-tuning.
