Obtaining the OpenupEd Label
Guidance for quality MOOCs
OpenupEd provides guidance to enhance the quality of MOOCs tailored to the best practices in e-learning and open education. To this end, OpenupEd offers various MOOC checklists and support materials open to anyone. In addition, new OpenupEd partners are guided in their quality enhancement processes by the partner community and in obtaining the OpenupEd Quality Label.
Institutions that want to apply for the OpenupEd label are stimulated to first use the OpenupEd Quick Scan to get an overview of all the benchmarks and features and whether your institution can meet this broadly.
Thereafter, the following procedure for obtaining the OpenupEd label applies:
- Contact OpenupEd secretariat indicating that you are applying for the OpenupEd label.
- Proceed with a self-evaluation on the level of achievement, supported by providing brief evidence for each benchmark.
- Based on the evaluation, a roadmap must be prepared indicating fields of improvement and list of priorities for the coming years.
- The self-evaluation and improvement roadmap will then form the basis for a review and discussion with (two) external experts.
The OpenupEd label will be awarded on the outcome of this final review. Note that new OpenupEd partners must obtain the OpenupEd label within three years after entry.
