ECBCheck is a quality improvement scheme for e-Learning programmes. It supports organizations to measure how successful their e-Learning programmes are and allows for continuous improvement though peer collaboration and benchlearning. ECBCheck forms a participative quality environment which allows its members to benefit in a variety of ways by having access to tools and guidelines for their own practice on the one hand, and being able to obtain a community based label on the other hand.
Three stages to quality are suggested:
- Members of the ECBCheck professional community document their commitment to quality by joining;
- The ECBCheck professional community provides access to and allows sharing of guidelines, tools as well as experiences for quality development for its members;
- On the basis of a detailed self-assessment process, members can enter into mutual peer-review partnerships to improve the quality of their e-Learning offers.
ECBCheck is developed from the community of organizations through an innovative and participative process which has been initiated by InWent – Capacity Building International, Germany and the European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning (EFQUEL). The ECBCheck community consists of over 20 affiliated organizations.
