Hear and See is a Swiss Virtual Campus project in Communication Sciences. It aims to the development of a set of online learning modules about media his- tory, analysis and sociology. Such modules, produced in multiple translations, will support bachelor courses at different Swiss Universities. The development of Hear and See requires a tight collaboration among partners from different fields. The paper discusses the twofold intersciplinary communication occur- ring in the project – interdisciplinarity at square power. The first level concerns content production, in which authors have to blend different approaches, per- spectives and methods in the study of media. The second level concerns the design and production of eLearning courseware: it is a process in which con- tent, instructional strategies, technologies and graphic design come together. The two levels are analyzed from three perspectives: (a) the meaning and approach to the project of each partner; (b) the communication strategies and practices adopted in it; and (c) the different issues at stake for each partner.
