Abstract

Online and blended learning is increasingly applied in adult education to enhance the accessibility and the flexibility of their education programs. However quality assurance, design of the learning environment, and competences of both learners and teachers are key issues that determine the success of online and blended learning. The “ALO” (Adult Learners Online) project – a research and valorization project funded by the Flemish government for the period 2014-2018 – addressed four objectives: the overall quality assurance of online and blended learning (OBL); the learning design and learner support in OBL; teacher professional development and policy support. Valorisation of the research findings resulted in an online competence centre. The (open) competence centre contains a range of evidence-based tools and instruments for the design, quality assurance and on how to motivate adult learners. In this poster the research outputs in the online competence centre are presented and you can explore different tools.
