Characterization of Virtual Project Teams for E-Learning Communities
AbstractThe e-Learning communities are beginning, little by little, to take off worldwide and now they are an important part of the educational system. One of those e-Learning communities is European Certification and Qualification Association (ECQA). ECQA (www.ecqa.org) - is a non-profit association; it is joining institutions and thousands of professionals from all over Europe and abroad. The ECQA has developed a set of quality criteria, which are used for the certification of the following types of service providers: trainers, training organizations, exam organizations, and certification organizations. The aim is to ensure the same level of training and certification quality in all participating countries. In this context, the present paper will present a marketing survey based on a questionnaire (using the Google Docs Questionnaire facilities) that was distributed among the ECQA members, in October 2012; with the occasion of the ECQA Days 2012 - Innovation in Education and Future Key Skills for European Research and Industry - at the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems from Austria. The main ideas behind this research are related to: (1) management of virtual project teams for e-Learning communities; (2) the role of using specific information and communication technology (ICT) for e-Learning and (3) the importance of using the new ICT for e- Learning.
