One year after the beginning of the project, the 1st General Assembly meeting joined in Tétouan, Morocco, under the auspices of the Abdelmalek Essaadi University, all project partners.
During the meeting, it was revised the work done so far in each one of the six work packages that comprise the project. The evaluation was extremely positive with all tasks running on schedule.
The consortium also discussed and approved the quality, sustainability, communication and dissemination plans of the project.
Accordingly, it is expected the project will have the first draft of the e-Engineering Good Practice Guide available for download on the e-LIVES website by the beginning of the New Year. This document will be the most important to be developed by the project partners, as it is expected it will serve as a guide for the development of new e-Engineering courses worldwide.
Regarding the quality assessment tools, developed to enable the quality assessment of e-Engineering courses, the questionnaires addressed to students and teachers are also ready to be revised. These questionnaires focus the functional, pedagogical and didactic aspects of an e-Engineering course and serve to evaluate the perception stakeholders have of the course and the corrective measures that may eventually be necessary to introduce to improve their level of satisfaction.
After revision, all documents produced by the e-LIVES consortium will be made available to download at the e-LIVES website. A discussion forum will be open to receive the valuable contributions of all interested in the subject and in the establishment of e-Engineering courses in their Institutions.

Compensation arrangements for teachers engaged in e-learning courses
In the framework of the e-LIVES project, we are conducting a survey on the compensation arrangements for teachers engaged in nationally accredited distance learning courses.
If you are responsible (University President, Dean, Head of Teaching Department, Pedagogical Responsible, etc.) within a higher education institution that offers this type of training and/or you are teaching, we kindly ask you to answer a short survey.
The e-Engineering Alliance is a Special Interest Group (SIG) inside the International Association of Online Engineering (IAOE) whose aim is to disseminate the e-Engineering concept all over the world.
The long-lasting purpose of the e-Engineering Alliance is to generate in higher education institutions a more committed and professional environment ready to introduce new forms of flexible learning into daily training activities and to create and manage accredited e-Engineering courses.
If you want to know more about the concept and to be involved in the e-Engineering Alliance activities, go to the e-Engineering Alliance webpage, and see how to become a member. It is completely free.
We are waiting for you.
