Abstract
In 2008-2009 Lund University, Sweden, took part in two European benchmarking projects on

eLearning, E-xcellence+ (EADTU) and Benchmarking eLearning exercise2009 (ESMU) as

part of the University’s policy for quality assurance and quality enhancement of education.

Among the aims were

· to adopt, as the first Swedish university, a benchmarking process according to

quality criteria of eLearning formulated by the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education

(acknowledged also by ENQA),

· to benchmark two international net-based master programs, both dealing with

sustainable development, and

· to take part in collaborative learning on European level in order to... (More)
In 2008-2009 Lund University, Sweden, took part in two European benchmarking projects on

eLearning, E-xcellence+ (EADTU) and Benchmarking eLearning exercise2009 (ESMU) as

part of the University’s policy for quality assurance and quality enhancement of education.

Among the aims were

· to adopt, as the first Swedish university, a benchmarking process according to

quality criteria of eLearning formulated by the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education

(acknowledged also by ENQA),

· to benchmark two international net-based master programs, both dealing with

sustainable development, and

· to take part in collaborative learning on European level in order to identify good

practice and to formulate roadmaps

A gratifying result was that the benchmarked master programs were awarded the Excellence

Associates label as the first programs in Europe. The label focuses on the capacity

of accessibility, flexibility, interactivity and personalization of eLearning in education.

This year (2010) LU was invited to participate in the First dual-mode distance learning

benchmarking club. With experiences from earlier benchmarking projects in mind, LU will

contribute to the work of presenting a correlation of benchmarks from the above mentioned

projects with the Pix &Mix-methodology.

The experiences from taking part in these projects are manifold. The learning process and

detailed discussions internally as well as externally contribute to raised insight,

understanding and implications for deeper strategies and developments at LU. Through the

latter project a conceptual framework emerged, consisting of some critical concepts in a

holistic perspective. (Less)
