Some Structural Changes on the Way towards eUniversity
Laaser, Wolfram
Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education, v12 n1 p126-137 Jan 2011
In the past eLearning has been introduced by many public universities however a concise IT-strategy was not followed during implementation. Different learning platforms were acquired by different departments and no systematic approach was set up to give support for course development, eTutoring or upgrading and archiving of electronic files. Although contemporary learning management systems had some administrative functions incorporated these data were not integrated with the rest of the universities administrative system. The need to work on integrated solutions offering most of the universities services with "one face to the customer" became obvious. The paper will discuss scenarios to explain the services needed and report on the present discussion about reforming organizational structures and adjusting IT infrastructure to create the future eUniversity.
