Online Learning Consortium Unveils Expanded Quality Scorecard Suite

Online Learning Consortium Unveils Expanded Quality Scorecard Suite | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it

The Online Learning Consortium (OLC), the leading professional organization devoted to advancing the quality of online learning, today announced the expansion of its Quality Scorecard suite, with the addition of three new scorecards.
The OLC Quality Scorecard uses research-based benchmarks and standards of excellence to help higher education institutions evaluate their online and blended learning programs. Institutions use the scorecard to determine strengths and opportunities for improvement of their programs, and to initiate planning efforts to address areas that require enhancement.
“The OLC Quality Scorecard has become the trusted tool for administrators to identify, measure and quantify elements of quality within their online education programs,” said Kathleen Ives, DM, chief executive officer and executive director, OLC. “Just as educators continue to seek out ideal learning environments and share effective practices for advancing quality, OLC will continue to expand the Quality Scorecard suite to support and guide their efforts.”
In addition to giving an institution a means to convey confidence in the quality of its programs to prospective students, the scorecard can be used to demonstrate the quality of online programs to higher education accrediting bodies. Plus, it can serve as an internal planning tool for institutions launching new programs or transforming mature programs.

Merit pages are created by the members of the network, so employers, universities etc can add your contributions to them.  I don't have an account but it plays to the credentials theme and also portfolios.  My only concern might be that as you don't own it yourself, or add to it, you cannot add context or learn from using it.
