This article describes how the eLearning platform was chosen, installed, integrated into the different existing universities’ systems, customized and enhanced according to both institutions’ needs. It shows also how the new platform (e-Courses) was then communicated and promoted among the faculty members of USI and SUPSI, and how its impact on the learning activities of the two institutions was evaluated through an online questionnaire, which showed high satisfaction levels with e-Courses.
