In 2003, the Institute of Common Initiatives and Resources of UP, through the GATIUP (Office of Faculty Support for the use of ICT) started a brand new project: E-learningUP|2003. This project is to be developed and followed from the perception phase of what e-learning is, passing to the development of contents, until the evaluation of the final results. This short paper will present this pilot project in several different perspectives: motivations, needs, procedures, partial results, obstacles and difficulties and also future expectations.
