Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Quality in Digital Learning

(15 February - 25 March 2016)

How can quality be measured in digital learning? Can the same criteria of traditional e-learning be used to measure the quality of new learning scenarios, such as mobile learning, gamified solutions or MOOCs? What are the added values of an international community working on the topic of quality in digital learning? These are only some of the questions that will be tackled during the MOOC.
The MOOC on Quality in Digital Learning will involve experts from theECBCheck community of international organisations, such as UNU, UNITAR, FAO, ITC-ILO, World Bank Institute and GIZ, among others. However, the crucial part of the MOOC is the involvement of participants by providing the opportunity to share their own resources and bring in individual expertise and experience.

Course Format
The MOOC will run online free of charge. Unlike most traditional MOOCs, the focus will be less on individual knowledge acquisition, but on networking and generating new knowledge together, following the motto: Connecting, sharing and co-creating!
Target group
The MOOC will be held in English, and is open to a broad target group: educational specialists, administrators, managers, lecturers or trainers and everyone working in the field of learning with digital media who cares about quality assurance.
