Senior university students taking an internationally distributed project course in computer systems find themselves in a complex learning situation. To understand how they experience computer systems and act in their learning situation, the why, the how and the where of their learning have been studied from the students' perspective.

The what aspect concerns the students' understanding of concepts within computer systems: network protocols. The why aspect concerns the students' objectives to learn computer systems. The how aspect concerns how the students go about learning. The where aspect concerns the students' experience of their learning environment. These metaphorical entities are then synthesized to for a whole.
