The paper investigates pedagogical and social factors on the BA online Enterprise degree programme of the E-College Wales (ECW) initiative designed by the University of Glamorgan. The study administered a qualitative methodology through the utilisation of a series of in-depth semi-structured interviews with e-moderators and students. The research instrument was designed to elicit responses from both these groups to determine pedagogical and social factors constituting effective and ineffective e-moderation and e-learning techniques. A conceptual framework has been developed to illustrate the factors influencing the roles of the e-moderator and e-learner. The findings demonstrate the importance of pedagogical and social factors.
