The Virtual University of Bavaria (vhb) did not in the year 2000 create a new independent university but a network of Bavarian universities. The vhb promotes and coordinates the development, the implementation and alignment of net based course offerings. The online courses are made available to students via the vhb platform.
Developing online course offerings
The member universities in the first instance record with the vhb through tendering their requirement of certain net based courses. The funding decision is taken on the recommendation of the programme committee by the steering committee. The development of courses and subsequent implementation and support and supervision is the responsibility of the professor in charge of the given projects.
Improving online course offerings
Irrespective of tendering, providers of vhb courses may submit applications for funding with the vhb to improve course offerings. Please contact in this regard project management at projektmanagement(at)vhb.org.
