eLearning Toolkit Evaluations
The evaluations you see on tools found within this toolkit were conducted by members of the WTS eLearning Team and the Teaching Support Centre. Evaluations are intended to aid readers in quickly assessing the qualities of a particular tool in meeting pedagogical, technical, and social aspects of teaching and learning through effective use of technology.
Evaluations were conducted based on a Rubric for eLearning Tool Evaluation developed by the team. The rubric consists of eight categories and twenty-seven sub-categories, each with three levels of quality:
An indicator that the tool meets high, evidence-based standards in that (sub)category.
An indicator that there is an aspect in that (sub)category that may be of concern with regards to its use for teaching and learning.
An indicator that the tool fails to meet standards in that (sub)category in a way that will have negative consequences for instructors and/or students
An indicator that the tool is not intended to accomplish the goals of a particular category.
Use the rubric to evaluate other eLearning tools beyond what you find here in the Toolkit. The rubric is downloadable and is made available under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International Licence, http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/
