The Quebec Virtual Campus in Health Care is a newly initiated, multi-institutional and multidisciplinary distance education project aimed at creating an e-learning environment that will provide health care practitioners with a highly interactive and individualized educational environment. The campus is intended to meet health professionals' current and future learning needs, regardless of the constraints of time and distance. The Quebec Virtual Campus in Health Care is founded on the pedagogical principles of two complementary schools of thought, constructivism and reflective practice. This paper will explain how these principles are embodied in the design features of the knowledge management tools, the online resources, the course content and structure of the virtual campus. A brief presentation of the site prototype will demonstrate the learning path taken by a typical health care professional.
