The paper reports experiences from designing and running the Nordic online course "Ecology of Farming and Food Systems". The aim was two-fold: 1) to design an online course which uses an explicit experiential learning approach and 2) to design a structure for online faculty collaboration across institutional and national boundaries. The experience of using Kolb's learning cycle to structure course processes and teacher collaboration onlinemay be useful in other contexts, where student-centred learning is the focus and cooperation among instructors across institutions and national borders is a challenge.
