Virtual Design Studios are proliferating as schools of architecture experiment with the technology of the Internet. Discussions about Virtual Designs Studios typically focus on technological issues – which hardware; what software – or environments – MOOs; ftp. Recently; some papers have been written on the perceptual issues and the social aspects of remote design collaborations; thus contributing to some of the contextual issues within which virtual studios are conducted. This paper contributes another perspective; presenting a review of the pedagogical issues raised in a VDS. It examines the difficulties and opportunities that present themselves in teaching a Virtual Design Studio.
