    In 2009 the Agency for Higher Education and Research Funding in Romania launched the ‘Improving University Management’ project, e-platform-based, in which two of the authors were involved. The paper covers: a short literature survey on the characteristics of e-learning platforms; applying an original mathematical model to rank them accordingly; ‘make or buy’ decision followed by ‘in-house’ e-platform development; a pilot survey on how this e-platform started working. The paper’s conclusions include implications for the academy policy makers and administrators as well as ICT business managers. As an in-progress-project (completion scheduled by 2011 yearend), further research areas, other conclusions and lessons are still to be learnt.
