Online Course Evaluation Project
"The Online Course Evaluation Project (OCEP) . . . Online courses are identified and measured against a set of objective evaluation categories. These criteria were developed through extensive research and review of instructional and course design guidelines, best practices from leading organizations specializing in online education, and from numerous academic course evaluations. The emphasis of the evaluations is on the presentation of the content and the pedagogical aspects of online courses, yet OCEP also considers the instructional methods and communication tools so vital in a successful online learning experience . . . .
"The evaluation process employs a three-member team for each course, consisting of a Course Evaluator, Academic Evaluator (subject matter expert) and Technology Evaluator. Team members are experienced in both the development and teaching of online courses." Online Course Evaluation Project, EduTools
