> Digital University


Since May 2020, the ITM has been organising the legal information centre on e-learning under the umbrella of the Digital University NRW. It will perspectively be part of the North Rhine-Westphalian online state portal for study and teaching.

Background: Digital university and online state portal

Through the Digital University NRW (DH.NRW), 42 North Rhine-Westphalian universities and the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia are dedicated to the topic of digital transformation. A central field of activity is teaching, or more precisely: digital teaching and learning. In order to make the large number of cross-university e-learning activities in NRW more visible and accessible, the DH.NRW is currently developing an online state portal for study and teaching. In the future, information, services and freely accessible teaching and learning materials for teachers and students will be bundled in one virtual location. The development of the state portal is being coordinated by the Centre for Science Didactics at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The portal is to be activated in spring 2021.
