Abstract Students in distance education at the KATHO (University college in Flanders, Belgium, www.katho.be) only need to come to the campus for assessment. Since September 2008, the center of excellence in e-learning, MAD (Mad About Distance) of KATHO organized a small project with 5 students located in five different countries all over the world. One student nearby the desert in Dubai inspired us to call this research “the Camel project”. The people involved in the project explored new methodologies and new technical tools to enable teachers to assess those students online. The project is still running and inspiring teachers of the KATHO to develop particular settings about online assessment, but also about online coaching. This paper is meant to share some of our experiences and conclusions concerning the online assessment and evaluation.
