The ACODE Benchmarks were developed to assist higher education institutions in their practice of delivering a quality technology enhanced learning (TEL) experience for their students and staff (recognising that some institutions refer to their practice with terms such as e-learning, online or flexible learning, blended, etc.). The original ACODE benchmarks were developed as part of an ACODE funded project in 2007. In 2014 the Benchmarks underwent a major review to ensure they are now both current and forward looking. These
revised benchmarks were then applied by 24 intuitions in the first ACODE Interinstitutional Benchmarking Summit held in Sydney.

As part of ACODE’s ongoing commitment to both this tool and the sector, it ran a second major Inter-Institutional Benchmarking Summit in June of 2016 in Canberra, again using the Benchmarks ( A total of 27
universities from Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific, South Africa and the United
Kingdom attended and engaged in a richly collaborative workshop that explored their individual capabilities across the ACODE benchmarks, working to identify shared issues, potential solutions and opportunities for ongoing improvements in the use of technology to enhance student outcomes and organisational systems.
