Abstract

Digitalization is affecting our world and thus our individual lives to an increasing extent. We may envisage a digital turn leading from the book-based Gutenberg Galaxy to the `internetbased ´ Digital Age. This ongoing change affects the academic field as well as all other parts of society. Not only research and knowledge communication but also teaching and learning in higher education are increasingly `going online´.
