Abstract:The digital policy “Digitalstrategie” is affecting students at universities in NRW. Studies have shown that students as well as universities must tackle a series of problems to implement those policies. For a policy to be successful, multiple aspects must be met. This research aims at giving practical implications for the implementation of the “Digitalstrategie NRW”, especially concerning the needs of students in the implementation process. Building on the existing theoretical groundwork, a research question has been generated: “How successful is the federalist organized Digitalstrategie NRW, especially concerning the positions of students against the opinions of stakeholders?” Policy success is defined as a spectrum that focusses on the target group. For the analysis, a triangulation-method was chosen. Based on document analysis, a survey was designed. Interviews were held with students and stakeholders. The results indicate that students want more support at their university, that some aims of the policy are not achievable yet, and that teachers play an important role in the implementation. It is recommended that students receive different support than the policy originally intended. Moreover, the aims of the policy should be continued, and teachers should keep receiving the support to implement digital learning and teaching methods.
