AbstractTeaching and research cooperation between the University of Paderborn in Germany and the Qingdao University of Science and Technology in Qingdao, China has led to the establishment of a joint faculty. To further intensify cooperation, an e-learning project has been launched that aims to build an infrastructure allowing joint online access to teaching material in Paderborn and Qingdao. Also planned is a project enabling students to participate in courses of the partner univesity by means of videoconferencing. This paper outlines the special requirements for such an e- learning platform and videoconferencing system, reports on the current status of work and shows what remains to be done in order to make effective use of the e-learning platform and videoconferencing system to step up cooperation.
