This text will present empirical experience from the implementation process of a virtual learning environment and suggest some analytical tools for further research. The implementation is analysed within the domestication theoretical framework. While domestication theory traditionally describe technology as double articulated, this study show how a virtual learning environment may be analysed as having three articulations. Finally, this paper will highlight how the process reached closure. The analysis is based on observation, and both formal colloquies and informal conversations with faculty at Oslo and Akershus University College. Data was collected from 2004 until 2007 and again from 2011 to 2012
