The quality criteria for online implementations have been created during fall 2017 as part of the eAMK project. The criteria was put together by Mari Varonen from JAMK University of Applied Sciences and Tuula Hohenthal from Centria University of Applied Sciences. Members from the eAMK quality criteria work group and commentators from universities of applied sciences and stakeholder groups took part in the work.

Several European quality criteria have been used as a basis for the quality criteria, especially the quality cards by Uutta avointa energiaa project and the quality criteria for JAMK’s online pedagogy.
