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.
