This paper describes and evaluates the use of a virtual learning environment (VLE) to enhance ICM capacity building within a higher education context. It was found that when combined with an appropriate teaching strategy, in this case, problem based learning, the VLE provides a valuable learning resource. Overall, the learning process experienced by students was perceived to be more beneficial than a conventional lecture-based teaching strategy. It was also found that even poorly motivated students engaged with material more fully than with alternative delivery methods. The paper concludes that capacity building techniques require more detailed debate in order to identify and develop appropriate techniques to maximise the potential of capacity building opportunities.
