Marketing Text In order to comply with European Quality standards and to receive official recognition for the training course the CLIPMA consortium chose a certification on the European level.The CLIPMA training course was awarded the European open ECBCheck certificate for e-learning quality.
ECBCheck is a new accreditation and quality improvement scheme for E-Learning programmes and institutions in International Capacity Building. The Open ECBCheck quality concept supports organisations to measure how successful their e-learning programmes are and allows for continuous improvement though peer collaboration and bench learning. ECBCheck certifies “Courses” and “Trainings”. “Trainings” consist of several modules which comprise a workload of at least 100 hours. Contrary to that, “Courses” are defined as a shorter learning unit with less than 100 hours workload. At least 20% of the
programme or the course must be technologically enhanced to fall within the scope of the ECBCheck. Therefore CLIPMA was certified as a “course” using two innovative tools, both tailor-made for usage by trainers and course organisators as well as for course participants, were designed and implemented to establish an easy-to-use, non-stational course:
- CLIPMA elearning tool and
- CLIPMA evaluation tool
CLIPMA elearning tool is based on Moodle, a well known and easy-to-use, open source, online learning management system offering various functions for course lecturers as well as for national managers and participants. Within the project Open ECBCheck certificate has awarded e-learning quality of the course.
