The aim of this paper is to present the perspectives of the E-University Duisburg-
Essen on the background of the “Bologna Process” and related strategies, geared
towards the creation of the European Higher Education Area by 2010 with free
mobility of students and a high degree of interoperability of universities.
Improvements in eLearning will support the Bologna objectives, since it will become a
core component in most courses and curricula. In the last 10 years, a lot of eLearning
projects have been launched, each with a different approach to sustainable
integration into university structures. To anchor eLearning in university daily life, the
University Duisburg-Essen decided on an integral strategy to foster the development
of processes leading towards “the university of the global digital age” (or EUniversity).
This presentation will focus on two projects which will be realized in 2008-09 by the
central service units – the University Library and the Center for Information and
Media services – where the authors are located.
