UNIVe project: aims and outputs

by admin last modified 2005-11-06 06:46 PM

UNIVe aims to collect and share the knowledge and experiences of developing a consortium-type e-university.

Growing international competition in higher education supported by the development of ICT is a challenge for many universities. Establishing consortia for using better limited intellectual and financial resources is one opportunity to be successful in this situation. In order to provide an e-university model that would be relevant for different European countries, we integrate available e-learning know-how of the previous successful international projects and analyse and integrate existing consortium-type e-university models from Finland (Finnish Virtual University), Sweden (Net University), Scotland (Interactive University), and Estonia (Estonian e-University). The main activities are the analysis of previous EC supported international and national initiatives in the field, designing activities of the small-state e-university model and launching a series of integrated pilot projects. The main output is the small state e-university model. The model will be described in a compendium and on a CD/DVD ROM, which is also including all materials of the project process. The strengthened European network of the main players in the e-learning field can be considered as a more general output of UNIVe.

The target groups of UNIVe are: groups related to the test-country Estonia (learners, teaching and supporting staff; universities; decision makers); potential users of the developed small state e-university model (other states and universities) and European universities covered by the project network and relevant parties in the field of ODL and ICT.

UNIVe project is aiming at achieving the following specific objectives:

  • to analyse and implement the outcomes of previous international projects in 6 core e-learning areas (thematic groups of the project);
  • to analyse 4 existing models of e-universities and integrate their experience
  • to develop a model of a small state e-university;
  • to test parts of this model by launching a series of integrated pilot projects
  • to make this innovative and integrated type of e-university model available for the wider community.
