Project: Baseline Study of eReadiness in Scotland’s Colleges

Client: Scottish Funding Council

A study to benchmark the development of e-enabled learning and associated activity, such as assessment and support services, across the college sector in Scotland.

We involved each college in a process of ‘Developmental Self-Audit’ based on the e-learning Maturity Model (eMM) developed by Dr. Stephen Marshall of Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand) – a leading international model for benchmarking e-activity.

The college Developmental Self-Audit approach was underpinned by:
  • Initial Desk research on the Scottish landscape, policy and programmes and on previous complimentary e-maturity work in England and New Zealand
  • Consultation involving individual interviews with national stakeholders, agencies and experts
  • Design and execution of an online Supplementary Survey for issues not directly covered by the DSA e-maturity methodology

The Developmental Self-Assessment (DSA) process was of significant value in ascertaining the status of e-activity across Scotland’s colleges. Many participating colleges derived internal value from the DSA process, in terms of sharing understanding and identifying both issues and opportunities for improvement.

Benefit: Appraise options for new services around online, open and distance learning
