The OpenupEd quality label: benchmarks for MOOCs

Rosewell, Jonathan and Jansen, Darco (2014). The OpenupEd quality label: benchmarks for MOOCs. In: Changing the Trajectory - Quality for Opening up Education, pp. 67–75.



We report on the development of the OpenupEd Quality Label, a self-assessment and review quality assurance process for the new OpenupEd MOOC portal ( This process is focused on benchmark statements that seek to capture good practice, both at the level of the institution and at the level of individual courses. The benchmark statements are derived from benchmarks which emerged from the E-xcellence e-learning quality projects. Self-assessment and review is intended to encourage quality enhancement, captured in an action plan. A quality label for MOOCs will benefit all MOOC stakeholders.
