In the four examples of pedagogic integration of Internet in a "multimodal" university situation reported herein, we bring into light an innovative process whose central objectives were improvement of the quality and relevance of the training strategies provided to students. This article will contribute to the characterization of the Internet integration continuum, from enhancing a traditional course with a minimal integration of Internet (level 1) to a complete integration in the form of what has been called a virtual campus (level 3). We suggest that the more or less intensive use of distance communication in the various modalities of integration does not reflect the quality of the learning. Indeed, we are convinced that, whatever the level of integration of Internet to the system, coherence of the proposed activities and pedagogic value of the tools implemented is the most determining factors for success.
