    distance learning study programs according to EU practices;

    2. Establish a framework for improving the quality of technology-enhance learning (TEL) and eLearning

    methodology on higher education institutions in Jordan;

    3. Provide training for relevant public authorities personnel responsible for accreditation and evaluation of distance

    Project Management

    Organisation of the kick-off meeting at Fundaci per a la Universitat Oberta de (FUOC) on10-12 March 2013.

    Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT), the new project coordinator, has signed the new grant

    agreement and partnership agreements with the 5 EU partners.

    PSUT has also appointed local financial and administrative staff to assist in running the project.

    A project website, virtual learning environment (VLE), and an online administrative and financial management

    system have been set-up by PSUT and University of Jordan (UoJ) at the following links: http://eqtel.psut.edu.jo,

    http://eqtel-vle.psut.edu.jo/moodle/, http://eqtel-afrs.psut.edu.jo/login.aspx respectively. All these were designed by

    an IT team at the Computer Centre in University of Jordan consisting of Mamoun Al-Dmour, Ahmad Khraisat and

    Faris Smadi. Ms. Haneen Hijazi from HU has also worked on the design of the VLE.

    Steering, dissemination and quality committees were established during the capacity building meeting held at PSUT,

    17-18 March 2015.

    A quality plan for the project has been developed.

    A dissemination plan for the project has been developed.

    Professor Michael Blakemore has been selected by the consortium as External Evaluator.

    The activities to date have helped to promote technology-enhanced learning in Jordanian institutions as well as

    contribute towards a longer-term legacy for each university in terms of promoting quality assurance culture.

    Quality Assurance in Technology-Enhanced Learning

    This has involved conducting desk research on the status of technology-enhanced learning in Jordan, and associated

    QA measures. The work has involved designing, distributing and analysing a survey of all Jordanian universities,

    and producing one report on current situation on needs of the country, and a second report for state-of-the-art of QA

    in TEL in Europe.

    EU partners produced an overview of the state-of-the-art on TEL good practices in universities in Europe and

    beyond.

    Selection of three pilot eLearning courses during a capacity building meeting held at PSUT 17-18 March 2015. The

    courses were: English skills, Renewable Energy Systems, and a Communications Engineering Lab. Each course was
