In recent times e-learning in different forms has been integrated in a high percentage in the study offerings of HEIs in Europe. The quality assurance of this type of provision has become a concern both for HEIs and for QAAs. Considering this and the fact that a new version of the revised ESG was published in 2015, an ENQA’s working group on quality assurance of e-learning was established. The aim of the working group was to work on a set of considerations for quality assurance of e-learning provision taking as reference the ESG 2015, examining the applicability and relevance of the ESG.
The methodology used was inter alia the analysis of relevant reports, international projects and studies as well as conducting a “consultation survey” for validating the outcomes among stakeholders in the sector including student representatives. The main results of the working group are presented in this paper.
