Atlantis University: a new pedagogical approach beyond e-learning Udo Bleimann

1. Introduction
Education is increasingly decisive for our societies. Consequently, many people are looking for new ideas in the area of learning and teaching. Atlantis University is one such ambitious project; it combines three different types of learning and teaching to form a single package for offer to all customers (Figure 1), be they are full-time students or people in the workplace. The three pillars of this university form a new paradigm for higher education development, delivery, support and assessment using Advanced Technology for Learning in a Net based Information Society (Atlantis). Atlantis University is an international partnership involving nine universities and companies from the European Union (EU) and USA, and is committed to developing an innovative high-quality institution with common branding. The idea evolved from long-term experience in face-to-face (f2f) and project-based teaching as well as several e-learning (e-L) research projects (Furnell et al., 1998, 1999; Stengel et al., 2003). First practical solutions have already been developed within the last two years (see section 5).
