Benchmarking e-learning in higher education

http://www.elearningeuropa.info/sites/default/files/elearning_theme_logo.jpgThis qualitative, multiple-case-study research with single and cross-case analysis focused on benchmarking e-learning in higher education was presented as an academic dissertation at the University of Oulu on December 14th 2012.

The results of this study include providing conceptual lenses with which to see, discuss and perceive the complexity of benchmarking elearning in higher education in extended, stretched and boundless learning environments. It has become obvious through the research that there is a need for new frames of reference for quality in e-learning.

La búsqueda del conocimiento: como los estudiantes usan las plataformas digitales para elegir sus universidades

http://revistaeducacionvirtual.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/moocss.jpegBy . El viaje en búsqueda de educación para los estudiantes se ha trasladado a la web. Uno de cada diez futuros estudiantes ya busca exclusivamente en línea por las clases y programas deseados, según estudios de  Google y Compete. Para aprovechar las oportunidades de venta de cursos digitales, los vendedores tienen que llegar a los estudiantes a través de  los canales adecuados

How online education can create a 'global classroom'

http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/.e/img/3.0/global/header/intl/hdr-globe-central.gifBy Daphne Koller. Around the world, and in developing nations especially, there is an overwhelming demand for higher education. Despite worldwide increases in tertiary enrolment numbers, there still remains disparity between those with access to quality education and those without. In Sub-Saharan Africa, for example, only 6% of college-age students are enrolled in higher education.
