Developing and improving courses

The Bavarian Virtual University (BVU), established in 2000, is not an independent university but a network of Bavarian universities. The BVU promotes and coordinates the development, implementation and revision of online courses. These online courses are made available to students via the BVU website.

Developing online courses

First of all, member universities approach the BVU by stating need for a certain online course. The decision about funding is made by the steering committee upon the recommendation of the programme committee. The professor responsible for the project is in charge of the development of the course and its subsequent implementation, support and supervision.

Improving online courses

BVU course providers may submit applications for funding from the BVU in order to improve or revise their courses; this application procedure is independent of the application procedure for establishing a new course. In this case, please contact the project management staff.

Allocation of responsibilities

  • Member universities: responsible for content and implementation
  • BVU: responsible for funding and supporting the project
