In response to an increased demand from education providers, including offshore educational providers, the Maltese Government has decided to examine the design of a national accreditation system for e-learning in Higher Education, with particular emphasis on non-traditional forms of education such as MOOCs. This paper describes the first two steps of a design thinking approach, to consider the challenges and opportunities which are informing the thinking of policy-makers, and examines the scenarios which may arise out of each one, with the aim of providing a basis for future ideation, prototyping and testing of an accreditation system.
