Abstract: The increased attention to technology-based learning in universities is inseparable from the changes that were implemented in the last decades of the previous century and can be caused by several reasons. First, the necessity to maintain competitive abilities that have emerged due to extraordinarily rapid development of information communication technologies (hereinafter ICT) in the entire world. The survival of global world economies was determined by rapid adaptation to the environment of a new quality. Facing this type of challenges universities had to become open, flexible and competitive, i.e. to create knowledge that meets the requirements of the rapidly changing labour market, to prepare specialists able to work in the knowledge society, and to focus on a new type of learners - adults. At the same time universities had to become educational institutions equipped with cutting-edge information technologies, employed by lifelong learning experts, research workers, and lecturers. On the other hand, European Commission documents on Educational policy that address the enhancement of the Bologna process and the programme “Youth on the Move”, launched on 15 September 2010, stress the importance of youth mobility. The Bologna Process has brought issues of mobility and internationalization to the centre of European higher education policy discussion and emphasized a common commitment to overcome obstacles to the effective exercise of free movement with particular attention to access study and training opportunities. Various European programmes facilitate and finance different forms of mobility – including exchange programmes and work placements through Erasmus, and mobility in joint degree programmes in Erasmus Mundus.[...]
