EFQUEL – Europe has its new Foundation For Quality in e-Learning

The European Foundation for Quality in e-learning was recently created in Brussels and is now hosted by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training.

After an intense aggregation and consensus building phase, the European Foundation for Quality in e-Learning (EFQUEL), supported by the European Commission and by CEDEFOP, the European Agency for the Development of Vocational Training, has been legally established on June, 30th, 2005, gathering some of the most relevant European actors in the field of e-learning.

What EFQUEL will do:

The Foundation’s mission is to enhance the quality of e-learning in Europe by providing a new services framework for members and support for all stakeholders. The Foundation is built on principles of dialogue and inclusiveness and its main objective is to promote excellence and innovation in a field that has often been characterized by uncertainty in the quality of the learning experience proposed by e-learning.

As its main activities, EFQUEL will:
  • activate the European Quality Forum;
  • run an Observatory on eLearning Quality approaches and Tools;
  • establish the European Quality Mark;
  • organise dedicated workshops and an annual International Conference.
Information on the EFQUEL activities is available on the managed by the European Schoolnet at
