COE research and results: Evaluation of online activities constitutes a vital part of COE SGH research for many years. The form and the scope of it is adjusted to the type of activities undergoing this process. At the introductory phase of e-learning at SGH it focused on checking the attitude of people involved in that process from both sides – the teachers and the students.
