Knowledge, Learning, Community

This document (32 page PDF) contains both an overview of how to use the rubric and the rubric itself. It was designed for a network of institutions located in East Africa (Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda) who are moving toward broader use of blended learning (defined here as "the purposeful fusion of face-to-face and online environments to conduct teaching and learning"). It's analogous to what people have just recently started calling 'hybrid learning'. The rubric itself covers such areas as navigation, content, instructional design, course structure, student support, technology and media. It's a basic rubric that won't apply to non-standard course design, but will probably service its intended purpose quite well.
