    16 of the top online course providers were scored on 8 different criteria considered to be important factors for learners and learning outcomes. The 8 indicators used for scoring are as follows:
    • Cost
    • Level of support provided to aid learning
    • Level of activity in the learning community discussion forums
    • Availability of learning pathways made up of a series of related courses for more in-depth study
    • Form of assessment provided
    • Availability of credentials
    • Quality of the interface & ease of navigation around the website
    • How useful the learning outcomes are in real terms

    The interactive League Table can be used by students and lifelong learners to explore factors which are of importance to them and be guided in choosing the appropriate online course platform(s) based on the different measures of importance.

    The 2017 Online Course Provider League Table is also accompanied by an interactive Comparison Table providing key information relating to each provider allowing users to make informed choices based on their own measures of importance.
