The rubric has been designed in 2018 by Lauren M. Anstey & Gavan P.L. Watson of the Western University (Canada). The rubric is aimed at instructors as a formative tool to evaluate eLearning tools in higher education. It specifically evaluates the suitability of an e-learning tool for the learners’ needs and for their own learning outcomes and classroom context. The rubric supports a multi-dimensional evaluation of the next categories: functionality, accessibility, technical elements, mobile design, privacy, data protection and rights, social presence, and teaching presence.
