  9. 9. Dr. Ulf-Daniel Ehlers ::: European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning ::: ulf.ehlers@icb.uni-due.de Web 1.0 Web 2.0  Off and On: Access is the challenge, Websites are made by institutions or ‚Techies‘.  Surfing: Web is pull medium, Infos are downloaded and archived  Knowledge from experts: Static projects which a defined begin and end, offered to public.  Call by call: Dial-up, text oriented bc. of high costs  We are on: Internet needs no pre-knowledge, ubiquitous availability.  Posting/ Publishing: Web is pull and push medium, patricipative.  Wisdom of the crowds: Microcontent, User‘s preferences influence representation.  Always online: Broadband, Flatrates, video, audio. Ready-made, read-only web Do-It-Yourself and publish Web

  11. 11. Ubiquitous Learning takes place everywhere and in different contexts, not only in a classroom.
  12. 12. Learners` built Learners are the organisers, participation not acquistion.
  13. 13. Lifelong Learning takes place lifelong, is multiepisodic and not bound to institutions.
  14. 14. Community related Learning takes place in communities (of practice): Learners join communities.
  15. 15. Informal & non-formal Much learning takes place informal, non-formal, at home, at workplace and in spare time, not teacher- and institution oriented.

  17. 17. Dr. Ulf-Daniel Ehlers ::: European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning ::: ulf.ehlers@icb.uni-due.de Two E-Learning Worlds Standard Content Individual Learning Learning Community No fixed Content/ Curriculum Students are learning with pre-formed knowledge Students are learning with pre-formed knowledge Students work together in (knowledge) communities Students work together in (knowledge) communities (Schulmeister 2005)
  18. 18. LMS = costly Data graves Real life plays next door Internet is the Content (self generating, updating) Value of learning = not content but reflective practice Rip, mix & learn (Richardson 2005) instead preformed course materials LMS 2.0 = PLEs = E-Portfolios, Blogs, etc. “Walled Gardens” E-Learning 1.0E-Learning 1.0 E-Learning 2.0E-Learning 2.0

  20. 20. Quality development: evaluation & certifictaion of content, processes, programs, institutions Quality management: organisational proceedures and indicators for their quality Quality assurance: analyses if a certain level of quality is met Quality control: looks for errors, mistakes Learning not in formal institutional education but informal and outside organisations Who is determining the quality? No pre-defined learning content Learning processes highly heterogenous What can be evaluated? With which methods? Quality 1.0 E-Learning 2.0
  21. 21. Dr. Ulf-Daniel Ehlers ::: European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning ::: ulf.ehlers@icb.uni-due.de Quality development 1.0  2.0 Where is quality in… E-Learning 1.0? E-Learning 2.0? Quality assessed through experts Quality assessed through learners and peers Learning platform Personal Learning Environment Content User Created Content Curricula Learning diaries/e-portfolios Course structure Communication Tutor availability Interaction Multimedia (Interactivity) Social networks / Communities of Practice (CoP) Acquisition processes Participation processes Quality for E-Learning 2.0 is not primarily an assessment against standards but is • development oriented, • a methodology to enable learners to deepen understanding, • and to improve their learning processes • self-reflection, self-assessment, peer-evaluation Quality for E-Learning 2.0 is not primarily an assessment against standards but is • development oriented, • a methodology to enable learners to deepen understanding, • and to improve their learning processes • self-reflection, self-assessment, peer-evaluation
  22. 22. E-Learning 2.0 – Quality 2.0: Not a new generation of quality methodology but changing functions and roles  From acquisition & reception to participation & negotiation: A new metaphor for learning  From control to culture & reflection: Not conformity but reflection  From inspection to inspiration: Towards quality as innovation  From product & process to competence & performance  From consumer to (co-)producer of learning: Focus on artefacts and processes  From ‘island of learning’ to ‘island hopping’
  23. 23. Target Group oriented evaluation Self-Evaluation Self AssessmentSocial recommendation & communitiy participation E-Portfolio Evaluation Peer Assessment, learning groups, network social recommendation mechanisms, peer-review, peer reflection, peer-assist peer-learning, benchlearning responsive evaluation, formative evaluation; Stakeholder participation Quality 2.0 Methods
  24. 24. Dr. Ulf-Daniel Ehlers ::: European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning ::: ulf.ehlers@icb.uni-due.de Example 1: Self-Evaluation  Step 1: Negotiation & Participation Learners are involved into the definition of criteria for evaluation of learning, they are coached by the development of their own objectives  Step 2: Evaluation Learners apply the criteria to their own learning experiences.  Step 3: Feedback / Callibration Learner receive a feedback to their own evaluation from the teachers and the peers, the aim is a calibration of their own judgement through a triangulation of perspectives.  Step 4: Learning Competence Development Learners are encouraged to develop learning paths form themselves on basis of their evaluation. From assessment of learning to assessment for learning!

  26. 26. The big questions...?! The drift to openess raises qustions...: What is the effect of openess on educational scenarios and what are suitabe quality methods for open learning, for OER? What is (good) quality „open practice“/ „open educational practice“? How can open learning be recognised? What is quality of MOOCs?

  29. 29. MOOCs and Quality...?!  Should we care about the MOOC drop outs?  Do MOOCs challenge the current HE model?  How will it be looking when learning and certification will be disaggregated?  What is it that makes a model with high drop out, little success rates and heterogenious target groups popular?
