Title iQTool software
Marketing Text The aim of the project is to develop an open source software tool integrated in LMS, which is suitable to assess the teaching quality management of eLearning training programmes and materials.
Description The iQTool project develops an innovative content and software tool to support quality of vocational training and eLearning. In order to meet this goal, several quality assurance systems had to be identified and their applicability to the institutions dealing with eLearning had to be studied. Moreover, in order to ensure the fulfilment of the project’s aim, research work had be done in order to develop a quality assurance methodology that will be further used in order to develop appropriate training material for the project’s target groups. iQTool will develop a software tool for the evaluation of the training materials in LMS according to the quality assurance methodology.
The target groups of the project are VET institutions which apply elearning as a mode of instruction.
This group contains the users i.e. the leaders, quality management officers, tutors and teachers of VET institutions. The target group includes e-learning content developers
involved in e-learning content preparation. These target groups will be able to improve the quality of their vocational trainings and to increase the effectiveness of their instruction. Among the management bodies, e-learning content developers and users there can be seen a distinct demand for modern quality management which require the application of the developments aimed
at in the project.
Please find attached 3 files containing reports on the project.
The software tool to be developed will be integrated with an appropriate open source LMS and should be general enough and appropriately
designed so that it could be integrated with other LMS in the future. The advantage of the integration of the evaluation system and LMS is that it can store the answers related to the quality simultaneously when the training material pages are displayed on the screen. Furthermore, it offers for developers and teachers an opportunity to display statistically the results in the LMS(s) which helps to evaluate them. The innovative content means development of an up-to-date and interactive eLearning tool which helps that the quality assurance of eLearning training materials development in vocational training institutions can be carried out.
