The University of Zagreb is the oldest and biggest university in South-Eastern Europe. As a comprehensive public Central European University, the University of Zagreb offers education, research, and scientific fields (arts, biomedicine, biotechnology, engineering, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences) and a broad spectrum of courses at all study levels, from undergraduate to postgraduate. With 29 Faculties, 3 Art Academies, and the University Centre for Croatian Studies, it is the flagship educational institution in the country, where more than 7900 teachers and 72480 students develop knowledge and acquire skills.
The University excels not only in teaching but also in research, contributing with over 50 percent to the annual research output in Croatia and 80 percent of scientific productivity of all Croatian universities. The central strategic issue of the University of Zagreb's future development is for it to be a research-oriented institution with high-quality teaching. Accordingly, the focus will be on Master and doctoral programs, encompassing all fields of science and art, boosting trans disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity, translational research, and nurturing the culture of innovation and transfer of knowledge. This should result in better inter-sectorial harmonization on local and regional levels.
The University of Zagreb is building a new Campus "Borongaj," which is the most significant investment in Croatian education in the last 150 years, and when it is built (finished), it will be used by more than 20 000 students. The Campus was officially opened on October 12th, 2007, and it hosts four university units for now. Centre for Croatian Studies, Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Traffic Engineering and Faculty of Economics and Business (only vocational study programs in economics and business). Five other faculties are also planning to relocate to the Campus in the next few years. Besides the (re)construction of university buildings, Campus will be home to a sports center, student residence hall, and several institutes.

E-learning at the University of Zagreb has been in use from the nineties mostly by individual activities of some teachers or as the technological possibility on few schools. However, these initiatives did not result in the systematic and sustainable use of e-learning.

Following E-learning Strategy stipulations, the University Office for E-learning, E-learning Centre, and University Committee for E-learning was established.
