EADTU - European Association of Distance Teaching Universities

EADTU members top European universities in IDT

Many universities are involved in the field of Instructional Design and Technology (IDT). The journal on Educational Technology Research and Development published an article on this, examining the academic productivity of universities in IDT.
This includes research in the number of publications in the top 20 scientific journals in the field of IDT over the period from 2005 to 2014. This shows that EADTU members the Open University UK and the Open University of the Netherlands are the only European institutions in the top 10 publishing institutions.

In addition the American researchers looked at the number of contributions to the Handbook of Educational Communications Technology (3rd and 4th edition).
Again only two European universities are listed in the top 7, both being EADTU members, KU Leuven and the Open University of the Netherlands.
