Nowadays, universities are challenged by changing students’ requirements, demanding labor market and fast pace environment. The evolution of communication technology allows us to deal with these problems. Advances in e collaboration are crucial to modern learning process, as it prepares students to work in groups over tasks. In this article we propose comprehensive basis for e collaboration platform which has been developed during successful implementation of e collaboration solution in Department of Management Information Systems at The Poznan University of Economics. The solution utilizes state-of-the-art web portal technology and digital assets management system to provide consistent, common platform for system users to work, communicate, and share knowledge. As opposed to e learning solutions, which are designed to provide environment for distant learning, e collaboration aims at sup-porting groupwork, communication, and is rather task oriented. Therefore it is well suited for specific didactic processes in the Department. The implementation took place during two-week summer apprenticeship of 23 students in July 2002.
