The quality framework developed during the project is based on the benchmarkes published by the EADTU (European ). This framework offers benchmarks focusing on six course related items:
- Strategic Management (external link)
- Curriculum Design (external link)
- Course Design (external link)
- Course Delivery (external link)
- Staff Support (external link)
- Student Support (external link)
From these six items four have been identified as relevant for the VTT-Box and have been cumulated to three fields: Course design, course delivery, and support (covers the student support as well as the teacher support).
The toolbox offers these quality fields in specific static lists (offered as PDF) as well as dynamic interactive checklists (based also on benchmarking).
The Benchmarks below are from EADTU Excellence and the use of E-xcellence quality associates label in this context has been done with the agreement and consent of the EADTU (European Association of Distance Teaching Universities). In case of any adaption of the benchmarks suiting the context is in comments below the original benchmark. The original framework is available from https://e-xcellence.eadtu.eu/
