The purpose of the annual international scientific conference on "eLearning and software for education" is to enable the academia, research and corporate entities to boost the potential of the technology enhanced learning environments, by providing a forum for exchange of ideas, research outcomes, business case and technical achievements.
The central theme of eLSE 2013 is "Quality and efficiency in e-learning".
The conference is particularly focused, but not limited, on the following panels:
- Quality assurance and assessment of e-learning
- Metrics in e-learning
- Games based learning
- Mobile technologies supporting education and training
- Standards and standardization in e-learning
- Cultural dimensions of e-learning
- Management of e-learning systems
- Collaborative Learning
- Virtual Learning Environments
- Web-based Learning Communities
The results of extensive analysis suggest that organisations in the field of Capacity Building have in general a high interest to obtain a quality label. Mostly, organisations are interested in a tool which supports measuring and improving impact efficiency, helping to ensure the success of eLearning programs and allowing to benchmark with other organisations.
The analysis we present in this article also shows that organisations differ in the diffusion of eLearning within their Capacity Building activities. To incorporate these differences a label with two options has been developed: one for single programs and another one for institutions.
