7 7 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, SwedenENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Since 2004 KTH offers net based courses for large student cohorts. Every year approximately 20% of all higher education freshmen in Sweden study a nationally bridging course in mathematics or other subjects.

8 8 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, SwedenENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Today there are about six such bridging courses and an additional 15 other courses, some of them in English and some offered in cooperation with other universities [1].1 Most of these are in Swedish but some are in English [2].

9 9 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, SwedenENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Model By using a "flat" non-hierarchical structure and modern social networking tools (wikis, blogs, LCMS, videoclips), we make it possible for thousands of students to share their learning processes, independently of where they are living. This is a big difference compared to the traditional way of organizing courses.

10 10 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Education for all Online courses make it possible for developing countries to deliver high quality courses in rural areas at low costs. World wide online courses will also form a standard which can be used as a benchmark for an introductory level and to promote students to be more mobile and to take courses in other places than in their native countries.

11 11 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Online education Another serious drawback in a traditional setup is that students at different schools in different cities will not communicate with each other, even if they are struggling with exactly the same mathematical problems and learning processes.

12 12 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden KTH-RCN and Math.SE Resource Centre for Netbased Education (RCN) at KTH [1].1 To strengthen national cooperation between universities in Sweden and to obtain a flexible economic and administrative model a virtual cooperation center MATH.SE exist [3]3

13 13 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden MATH.SE Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm Stockholm University Uppsala University Linköping University Örebro University University of Gävle Mälardalen University Imperial College, London Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) Universität Stuttgart.

14 14 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden MATH.SE MATH.SE takes care of infrastructure, support, formalities, etc. and organizes activities for students to successfully complete the course on the Internet. Call center solution for tutoring – the students can call or their personal mentor.

15 15 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden MATH.SE Students belong to different universities but study together in one virtual classroom. Universities get administrative tools and can monitor their students.

16 16 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden A new educational paradigm students in the same virtual classroom in one single course. Students study in the same classroom but are formally enrolled at different universities. High quality resource allocation. Mass-individualization. Large inter-cultural community.

19 19 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Present courses: Other online courses Courses in philosophy (such as Argumentation theory) Communication and project management in virtual environments Digital learning and competence

20 20 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Contiunuous Media Development Integration of new media and interactivity, such as interactive net video, pod casting, community building and social software, Open Educational Resources (OER), etc. Global course activities

21 21 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Quality assurance Specific international accreditation Evaluations (self- and international) Benchmarking Programme-Course-Module: Quality stamp-Accreditation In e-learning need for

22 22 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden In a recent report (E-learning Quality (ELQ) – Aspects and criteria for evaluation of e-learning in higher education. Report 2008:11R) the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education (NAHE) has surveyed the work on quality assurance of e-learning in higher education on a European level in nine selected countries. One conclusion is that quality in e-learning is a non issue for many, especially for the quality assurance agencies.

23 23 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden

24 24 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden SIG-DLAE project time: The main output from the project was a proposal for a European accreditation system in e-learning and blended learning.

25 25 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Objectives: 1) Compare the European experiences on distance learning with an existing accreditation referential (criteria, methodology, policy, etc.). In a first instance, the DETC (Distance Education and Training Council, US) will be considered. 2) Improve and enlarge these criteria from the exchange of information on the practical experiences done by partners of our project and more generally in higher educational institutions in Europe. 3) Adapt these criteria for the definition of an emerging European accreditation process in e-learning and the corresponding accreditation process.

26 26 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden Approach: Activities: a) identify best e-learning practices starting from European experiences, b) evaluate these practices elaborating a simple and evolutionary method, c) infer accreditation criteria from practices, d) adapt criteria from US accreditation processes, e) contribute an accreditation process for Europe, f) set up the bases for better transfer to other sectors and levels of education and training in Europe.

27 27 ENQA Workshop Oct. 7, 2009 Sigtuna, Sweden It was also planned: 1) to reinforce our network of European education institution 2) to constitute the kernel for a European set of standards in e-learning and the corresponding accreditation process.
