E-Learning Systems Support of Collaborative Agreements: A Theoretical Model
Aguirre, Sandra; Quemada, Juan
Educational Technology & Society, v15 n4 p279-295 2012
This paper introduces a theoretical model for developing integrated degree programmes through e-learning systems as stipulated by a collaboration agreement signed by two universities. We have analysed several collaboration agreements between universities at the national, European, and transatlantic level as well as various e-learning frameworks. A conceptual model, a business model, and the architecture design are presented as part of the theoretical model. The paper presents a way of implementing e-learning systems as a tool to support inter-institutional degree collaborations, from the signing of the collaborative agreement to the implementation of the necessary services. In order to show how the theory can be tested one sample scenario is presented. (Contains 8 tables and 7 figures.)
