  • In 2000, the European Union adopted a ’Distance Sales Directive’ for all member states, modelled on the German Distance Learning Protection Act.

    Im Jahre 2000 hat die Europäische Union eine ’Fernabsatzrichtlinie’ für alle Partnerländer vorgegeben, die ihr Vorbild im deutschen Fernunterrichtsschutzgesetz hat.

    • Quality Certification for
    • E-Learning in Universities
  • The Need for eL Quality Certification
    • Quality assurance is becoming increasingly important as ICT-based learning becomes more and more widespread in universities in Europe.
    • Looking at the current situation, ICT based learning is still a rather new phenomenon and that different “visions” of eLearning exist.
    • However - within Europe, a broadly acceptable Quality Accreditation system in eLearning within HE is absent despite the need to support HE in order to face the challenges presented by the emerging needs associated with the introduction of new technologies
  • UNIQUe – Ecology CEL eLearning Program Accreditation (EFMD) MASSIVE (eLearning Programme 2005-2007) Institutional Peer review Method/Model Impact on Universities Management Services UNIQUE Project (Socrates Programme 2007-2008) Institutional Accreditation Converging criteria Accreditation method Joint effort EFQUEL SIG HE HEXTLEARN (LLP Programm 2008-2010) System approach to ICT use in HE & Quality Assurance European Peer Reviewers Team
    • UNIQUe certifies ICT adoption and integration for learning in HE based on broad consensus from several initiatives.
    • UNIQUE involves HEIs into a collaborative benchlearning process on ICT adoption.
    • UNIQUe is based on a holistic model : pedagogies, technologies and support services.
  • Why is UNIQUE unique? (1/2)
    • UNIQUe is an accelerator for quality improvement and innovation.
    • Compared to other quality initiatives in the area of technology-enhanced learning, UNIQUe has a broader institutional approach and is not only related to e-learning. The Unique quality label builds on the broadest stakeholder involvement.
    • The UNIQUe process is structured in six very distinct stages and offers a formalised approach in each of the steps.
  • Why is UNIQUE unique? (2/2)
    • The Unique quality label provides an accreditation as a result, next to continuous quality improvement mechanisms.
    • The Unique quality label focuses on innovation. UNIQUe ensures continuous quality improvement since it is a diagnostic tool for self-assessment of the institution
    • The UNIQUe label benefits from an overall institutional framework already tested through the MASSIVE project and from the EFMD experience
