MOOQ: Successful Kick-Off at OUNL

MOOQ is the European Alliance for Quality of Massive Open Online Courses, called MOOCs.

I was very pleased as MOOQ coordinator to welcome all partners at the OUNL in Heerlen.

The MOOQ kick-off meeting was extremely successful:

We could define the vision, the mission and first MOOQ activities.

The vision of MOOQ is to foster quality in MOOCs leading to a new era of learning experiences.

MOOQ’s mission is to develop a quality reference framework for the adoption, the design, the delivery and the evaluation of MOOCs in order to empower MOOC providers for the benefit of the learners.

To improve the quality of MOOCs and to enhance the unique digital market in Europe, MOOQ will lead to new Q-generation of MOOCs that will be designed, organized and tested as qMOOCs. This will be done in close collaboration with all interested partners and stakeholders in Europe and beyond.

A first MOOQ website is already published.

MOOQ promises: We will make MOOCs better!
