Intercampus is a joint project developed by Catalan universities supported by the Secretariat for Telecommunications and the Information Society of the Ministry of Innovation, Universities and Enterprise of the Government of Catalonia. The aim of the project was to develop a pilot exchange programme for free elective subjects that are taught over the Internet.
Intercampus allows students from other universities to participate in the virtual teaching of a specific university and to communicate and receive information. The programme also coordinates administrative support and services between the student’s home university and the one offering the subject.
Intercampus began in the second four-month term of the 1999-2000 academic year. More than 600 students throughout Catalonia have studied Intercampus subjects.
