Creating an Online Dimension for University Rankings
Cloud created by:
15 May 2017
Comparing universities and courses is of interest to a variety of stakeholders including potential students, policy makers, news and media organisations, and universities themselves. There are a range of existing university ranking schemes that provide comparisons but typically these are designed with face-to-face teaching and learning in mind. We will describe work we have undertaken to date to establish a ranking system that includes indicators of the quality of online teaching and learning. The work reported was completed in the first 8 months of the EU Erasmus+ funded CODUR project with partners from Universitat Oberta De Catalunya and Consiglio Nazionale Delle Ricerche.
