TEL MOOC Long Term Impact Evaluation Study

Perryman, Leigh-Anne (2020). TEL MOOC Long Term Impact Evaluation Study. Commonwealth of Learning.



This report presents the findings of a theory of change-based evaluation of the massive open online course on Introduction to Technology-Enabled Learning jointly offered by the Commonwealth of Learning and Athabasca University. The report finds extensive short-, mid- and long-term impact on TEL implementation and open educational practices across 32 countries, leading to improved learner outcomes and institutional change. However, infrastructure problems and institution-related, technological and cultural barriers limit impact in many contexts.
