Course Design

This part offers tools to design modern Continuous Vocational Education and Training (C-VET) blended learning courses using multiple devices. This tool is based on the eXcellence Framework developed by the  European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) and has been adapted and modified to fit to the needs in C-VET.
Here you can make a self-evaluation of your course design. Please answer the questions according to your estimation. You will get an immedeate feedback and – if possible – some hints and comments.

Course Design Self-Evaluation

Statement strongly agree agree disagree strongly disagree not applicable
The course includes clear statements of training outcomes (in terms of competences).
The course uses training outcomes that determine the means used to deliver course content
In the course design, development and evaluation experts in training aspects as well as in technical aspects are involved.
Open Educational Resources (OER) and other third-party materials were selected with regard to the learning outcomes, were tailored if necessary to fit to the training context and integrated with other learning materials.
The E-learning materials have sufficient interactivity (trainee-to-content or trainee-to-trainee) to encourage active engagement and enable learners to test their knowledge, understanding and skills.
Independent training materials to enable trainees with regular feedback through self-assessment activities or tests is provided.
The course conforms to explicit guidelines (concerning layout and presentation) and is as consistent as possible to the company / enterprise / firm.
The course provides both formative and summative assessment (if assessments are foreseen).
Course materials, including the intended training outcomes, were regularly reviewed, updated and improved using feedback from stakeholders (mainly trainees, employer or customer of the training).
