  5. 5. Why are we doing this?• OLTF @DaveOwhite:• "Information about online programmes is lacking and often difficult to find, both for distance courses and for the online learning elements in blended programmes. This has a significant impact on student choice, domestically and internationally. Only with better information can prospective students find what they want, judge value for money and make more accurate decisions about where and how to study. Better information will give institutions competitive edge" Report to HEFCE by the Online Learning Task Force January 2011.
