From January 2014 to December 2015, the TALOE (Time to Assess Learning Outcomes in E-learning, ef. 543097-LLP-1-2013-1-PT-KA3-KA3MP) consortium is working on a European project focused on developing a web-based platform to help teachers and trainers decide on the e-assessment strategies to use in their online courses.

Following the ALOA (Aligning Learning Outcomes and Assessment) model, the specific goals of this project, funded with support from the European Commission, are the following:
- To research and select innovative e-assessment practices that take advantage of the use of technology.
- To develop a web-based tool to relate learning outcomes and e-assessment strategies.
- To test the implementation of the tool with real case studies.
- To distribute and disseminate the TALOE tool among the communities of stakeholders.

In this paper, we will present an overview of the project and the already achieved results, specially the selection and analysis of e-assessment practices and the first steps in the development of the web-based platform, where teachers will describe the learning outcomes of the course and the TALOE platform will then provide an e-assessment strategy that is consistent with the course.
