The paper describes the concepts of Virtual Campus and Virtual Mobility and refers to several past and present projects and initiatives in the field. Through these previous experiences, a shift of concepts is noticed: from the fully online Virtual Campus to Virtual Mobility, whereby the more traditional universities open their borders and “blended models” gain more and more interest. To redefine the concept of Virtual Campus in order for it to be applicable to the changed educational needs of today, the Re.ViCa project has been set-up und funded by the European Commission. The project makes an inventory and systematically reviews cross-institutional Virtual Campuses of the past decade. In this paper we look more detailed for critical success factors for virtual campuses. After a empirical data-collection with 17 worldwide recognized experts in the e-learning field we describe 29 factors that are of main importance for large scale e-learnng initiatives in general.
