The Masters level Opportunities and Technological Innovation in Vocational Teacher Education project aims to develop the use and management of virtual learning environments in the area of vocational teacher training, drawing on a well established international partnership of institutions providing both technical and educational expertise. This paper gives an overall picture of results and products of the collaboration. We touch upon the aims, the assessments and the learning process of using "Multimedia and e-Learning: e-learning methods and tools" module in detail. The main cooperative and collaborative devices are presented in virtual learning environment. The communication during collaborative learning, the structured debate on forum and the efficiency of collaborative learning in VLE are interpreted at the end of this paper.
