Sammanfattning

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.
