Original Abstract

The European project EVICAB is devoted to implementing the idea of a virtual university campus for teaching a standardized curriculum of Biomedical Engineering (BME). This joint effort of several universities from Northern and central European countries should lead to a possibility for students from anywhere in Europe (or even in the world) to study the Biomedical Engineering via Internet connection, still under guidance of hopefully some of the best BME tutors from different European universities offering quality elearning courses to EVICAB. It has turned out that one of the important issues to be solved in frame of the project is the design of a suitable organizational structure that would enable smooth running of the virtual university in all respects, i.e. tuition, home works and projects, and also reliable tests and exams. The main ideas of the corresponding organizational structure aredescribed.
