The Costs of Networked Learning Phase 2: The trial of Activity-Based Costing

The Costs of Networked Learning Phase 2: The trial of Activity-Based Costing

Ratings: (0)|Views: 6|Likes:
Published by Paul Bacsich
In 1998, the JISC Committee for Awareness, Liaison and Training commissioned a study to investigate the hidden costs of developing and supporting networked learning. The resulting study “The Costs of Networked Learning” provided a theoretical framework and concluded that it was difficult to cost this activity as there was no consistently used costing approach across the education sector at that time.
Following this study, JCALT has funded this extension, the aim of which was to take the theoretical framework and develop it into a practical handbook. This report focuses on one particular approach to costing: Activity Based Costing, piloted at a School Level within Sheffield Hallam University. It was found to be a useful tool in this context. As well as focusing on the specific example and generating generic guidelines for institutions interested in ABC, the final report also adds to the debate about costing in higher education. In this respect it is of wide interest to the HE community and JCALT will share these findings with the Funding Councils’ Joint Costing and Pricing Steering Group
