The project was centered around 'stand-alone e-learning', most notably Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), and Small Private Online Courses (SPOCs).
The outcomes of e-VALUATE are of broad use for the academic recognition of MOOCs and SPOCs. There was also a special focus on improving refugees' access to higher education.
The e-VALUATE project:
- provided an overview of the current state of play regarding online learning. This includes issues such as quality assurance, credit transfer and authenticity.
- undertook a needs assessment of the type of information higher education institutions required for the recognition of online learning.
- produced several publications tailored to different stakeholders in online learning. Find them under publications.
