The evaluation of blended and on-line university teaching and learning models in the context of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) by means of the use of moodle platform activity reports
The incorporation of Spanish universities into the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) has given rise to new models of assessment for university teaching. These models are placed under the general heading “teaching performance programs”, among which are the DOCENTIA program run by ANECA (the Spanish National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation). Within the new context of blended and distance learning models, namely those that are currently being used for various university qualifications, the incorporation of information technology platforms in the management of learning makes it possible to extract data and to statistically analyze information using the system’s “activity grids”. We examine the experience of blended learning courses for various academic programs that are being held at Carlos III University, e.g. via the Moodle platform. This includes the need to gather all the information that is generated by this system, i.e. complementary and support materials for establishing quality indicators in the evaluation process of university teaching.
