IO4. Policy and practice guidelines for integrating eLearning in Higher education

IO4. Policy and practice guidelines for integrating eLearning in Higher education

The IO4 will engage key people for the production of a policy report within the context of integrating eLearning in HE for maximising the opportunities for all to participate in education and provide equal opportunities for all. The main objective of IO4 is to provide concrete policy recommendations for University leadership teams, decision makers, and key policymakers at national policy levels of government and governance in the EU and promote the use of online teaching and learning in HE.

Building on input provided by project deliverables with reference to the national policy recommendation reports, the overarching goal of this output is to fit the brief practical recommendation reports into policy directions. Initially, discussions with stakeholders will take place and secondly, consolidation of the scientific results of the different outputs will turn into policy-relevant messages related to eLearning in various subjects/fields of study. Last, an eLearning readiness checklist will be adapted to lead to examine HE institutions and faculty readiness to include online practices/methodologies/strategies into their courses, and provide support to policymakers to develop strategies for adopting eLearning in their institutions.

Therefore, this intellectual output will be operationalized through the following steps:

1. Discussions with Policymakers and key Stakeholders

2. National Policy Recommendations - Desk research

3. Implementing the eLearning readiness checklist for HE institutions

4. Final Policy Recommendations report

5. Translation of the Final Policy report (comprehensive and brief version) and dissemination


The Policy guidelines will be one of the few practical tools for policymakers in making decisions on how to integrate eLearning as a key driver for modernizing higher education institutions in Europe. The focus of the report will address the significant policy and practice issues and topics of integrating eLearning in HE and is fully aligned with EU policies and HE needs. It will include practical tips for policymakers on integrating eLearning in universities.


Using the practical policy tips and guidelines, HE institutions will be able to improve and modernize their curricula and integrate cutting edge technology tools for the design and delivery of courses. Successful use of the guidelines will allow HE providers and their staff to develop strategies and make decisions on digitalization thus multiplying the impact of the project. This will ensure that the report will have a continued impact into the future.


The report will initially be developed, reviewed and piloted in educational environments in the partner countries. Demonstrating the adaptability of the report in this manner emphasizes the potential for further exploitation within the partner countries but also in countries beyond the initial partnership. It must be stressed that the issues and policy guidelines that the report addresses are key priorities for the EU (improve quality of HE, digitalization, Open Education Agenda, Digital Education Action Plan) and are likely to remain at the forefront of EU policy for the foreseeable future.

P5 will be leading this output with the contributions of all partners in all the steps of the implementation.
