Jede Zielgruppe hat andere Bedürfnisse: Auf der einen Seite nutzt ein großer Teil der Studierenden an der TU Dresden die universitäre Lernplattform. Auch wenn einige meinen, man könnte sich doch genauso gut auf Facebook austauschen. Die Lehrenden sind längst nicht alle so lässig, deshalb findet unter anderem das Q2P-Forum statt. Prof. Dr. Thomas Köhler, Direktor des Medienzentrums, konstatiert neue Herausforderungen, etwa die "Veränderung des Alltags der Wissenschaftler, die sich mittlerweile in vollständig digitale Forschungs-Workflows eingebunden sehen".

Williams, Keith; Kear, Karen and Rosewell, Jon: Quality Assessment for E-learning: a Benchmarking Approach

Williams, Keith; Kear, Karen and Rosewell, Jon: Quality Assessment for E-learning: a Benchmarking Approach | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"This manual is the main product of a suite of EU funded projects undertaken under the auspices of EADTU: E-xcellence (2005-2006), E-xcellence plus (2008-2009) and E-xcellence Next (2011-2012). The overall aim of these projects has been to develop a methodology and supporting resources for the quality assurance of e-learning in higher education. The E-xcellence projects involve a core pool of experts from six European Universities with a stake in e-learning developments (see below), and an extended group drawn from a total of 50 institutions during the course of the projects."

Ossiannilsson, Ebba: Benchmarking e-learning in higher education: Lessons learned from international projects - Doctoral dissertation 2012

"This doctoral dissertation revealed challenges to integrate external quality audits and internally driven benchmarking. The studies have likewise revealed the need for methodological changes by quality assurance bodies and authorities carrying out audit and accreditation for integrating e-learning into quality assurance, as well as the need to fully understand the complexity and the special characteristics of e-learning. Probably, the challenge lies not with the system, success factors or benchmarks but in the lack of knowledge and experience of e-learning systems amongst those charged with implementation. The concept benchlearning was introduced as part of benchmarking exercises."

Clark Quinn: Levels of eLearning Quality

Clark Quinn: Levels of eLearning Quality | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

Of late, I’ve been both reviewing eLearning, and designing processes & templates. As I’ve said before, the nuances between well-designed and well produced eLearning are subtle, but important. Reading a forthcoming book that outlines the future but recounts the past, it occurs to me that it may be worthwhile to look at a continuum of possibilities.

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, August 1, 2012 3:44 PM
The evaluation framework here draws on three main influences: a countenance approach ; action evaluation and report and respond. Distinctive to the approach is that it permits insider evaluation, led by internal agents within the organization who are well placed to use the evaluation research on an ongoing basis to guide and influence decision-making.
Stake’s countenance approach to evaluation is represented schematically with three phases: antecedent, transaction, and outcome. At each phase there are two categories of data: descriptive data and judgement data.
The process of countenance evaluation is to portray both the degree of congruence between the descriptive data and the judgement data and the logical contingency between the intents and outcomes of each phase with the next. The term “portrayal” is significant here, because a distinctive aspect of countenance evaluation is the generation of depictions of what is observed. What is observed is then compared with the intended outcomes of the programme, and inferences can then be formulated. These inferences not only identify the intended outcomes
that have or have not been achieved, but also identify the unintended and observable outcomes of the programme. For the evaluation of the e-learning implementation, the strength in this approach lies in its facility
in organizing a large amount of quite diverse data.A second guiding influence on the development of the evaluation framework is taken from the arena of conflict resolution, namely, action evaluation. In action evaluation, there are similarly three phases: baseline, formative,
and summative.
Action evaluation is, unlike countenance evaluation, very much a participatory evaluation method and involves stakeholders from the outset. The purpose of the evaluation is to make a difference to the
actions of individuals and groups within the stakeholder body. Therefore, stakeholders are involved at all stages of the evaluation. For example, in the first, baseline phase, stakeholders identify what the terms of success might be for the intervention on an individual, group, and organizational level. The emphasis is not only on the “what,”
but also on the “why,” thus making explicit inner motivations for action (Rothman, 2003).
This approach was helpful in providing a context for the evaluation meetings held intermittently throughout the evaluation process.
The third major element to the evaluation framework is a reporting method taken from Stronach and McLure’s work on educational evaluation (1997). According to this method, the evaluator presents a structured report to the stakeholders at a number of points within an evaluation. In the report the evaluator makes provisional, and
sometimes provocative, statements resulting from analysis of documentation, discussions, and observations.
The report raises questions for consideration by the readers, and provides space within the printed document for the
insertion of stakeholder responses, be they further clarification, correction, support, or objection to the evaluator’s formulations.
This approach enabled early feedback on the evaluation work and brought to light useful additional viewpoints and facts that increased the validity of the evaluation work.
