Survey on the Status of Digitization at German HEI
In: European Journal of Higher Education IT 01/2020
The results of a survey on the digitization of universities in Germany prove that digitization is of great
importance for the three dimensions of research, teaching and learning and administration in general,
but that the actual implementation status of digitization at German universities is much more restrained. Particularly in the area of administration, the actual level of digitization accomplished at German
universities is still regarded as comparatively low. If the IT infrastructures and the systems implemented are analyzed, the status quo is characterized by a large amount of different systems, most of
which do not yet allow continuous workflows and are hardly integrated. Many universities show
completely different levels of maturity for different systems.
