In recent years, a diffuse way of promoting information and communication technologies is through the quantification of data, such as indices of references, access counters to webpages, total views of videos on YouTube, and others that are often superficial for didactics. Some data are presented as magnets to attract students to education courses—education as a commercial product and not as a public good freely accessible to all. This is an attractive format in offline and online communication channels, but it lacks metrics to build and evaluate knowledge and experiences with a critical perspective.

Assessment Methods and Success Factors for Digital Education and New Media analyzes and evaluates the efficiency of the teaching-learning process and dissemination of knowledge to make the most of the potential of new information and communication technologies, examining the theories and practices of interactive content, under the formula of constructive criticism. Covering topics such as digital challenges, information architecture, and interactive design, this premier reference source is an excellent resource for educators and administrators of both K-12 and higher education, software developers, interactive designers, preservice teachers, teacher educators, evaluators of interactive systems, government officials, librarians, researchers, and academicians.
