Sammanfattning

In 2009 Lund University was invited to participate in the international project the First dual-mode distance learning benchmarking club. From past experiences Lund University was asked to make a concordance between different benchmarking models and their criteria in relation to another widely used model, Pick&Mix. The task was also to suggest improvements of the Pick&Mix model and to suggest and include possible new criteria according to Lund University´s experiences of European benchmarking processes through the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) and the European Centre for Strategic Management of University´s (ESMU) as well as to the Swedish frame of references. This has gained international attention through the model on quality criteria for e-learning (ELQ) by the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education but also through the success of the Swedish Net University, 2002-2008.
In this report an account on the ELQ-model is given, together with a short introduction to the projects as such (EADTU:s E-xcellence+, ESMU:s E-learning benchmarking exercise (ELBE), and the First dual-mode distance learning benchmarking club).
The working process by Lund University on the latter project is explained as a background to a discussion on an emerging conceptual framework. In addition short backgrounds to the current discourse and debate on e-learning and benchmarking of quality in higher education are given.
The results deal with areas found critical for development, planning, implementation and quality evaluation of e-learning. The study reflects on their significance in a wider learning context in the shape of an emerging conceptual framework. The various concepts of the framework clearly give expression to the meaning of education from a student’s point of view and within students´ involvement. The framework highlights a boundless, personal and flexible education in a global and eco-sustainable world. The findings seem to closely follow the current discourse and debate in and for the 21st century.
