Abstract

This paper evaluates the Global Campus e-learning programmes offered by the School of Computing. The programmes are delivered to students at seven collaborative partner institutions located in China, Cyprus, Egypt, Hong Kong and Singapore. The same programmes are also delivered to students at our London campus. All programmes employ the same course management assessment and quality-control procedures so that all students ahave an equivalent learning experience. These procedures comply with the standards laid down by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) of the Higher Education Funding Council of of England (HEFCE). Recently a sustainability analysis was completed correlating programme income with staff salary costs for all programmes offered by the University. Using these figures we have been able to estimate the benefits of delivering the programmes with Global Campus e-learning materials in terms both of learning enhancement and cost reduction.
