The University of Pretoria offers a masters degree in computer-integrated education, incorporating a module called Internet-based learning. This module uses constructivist and collaborative techniques via web-based distance learning to portray aspects of a real classroom in a web-environment. The Hexa-Metamodel (HCMm) is a synthesis of paradigms of contemporary learning and instructional theory, comprising six elements relevant to e-learning events and environments, namely: (i) cognitive learning theory, (ii) constructivism, (iii) components of
instruction, (iv) collaborative learning, (v) customisation, and (vi) creativity. Using the HCMm as an evaluation approach, this article investigates the module's webclassroom and collaborative environment to examine conformance to contemporary
learning theories. We present findings of a survey among students, identify strengths and their causes, and note problems and recommendations.
