In Search of Quality: An Analysis of e-Learning Guidelines and Specifications
Hirumi, Atsusi
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v6 n4 p309-329 2005
Educational institutions across the country are adopting guidelines to help assure the quality of e-learning programs and courses. Corporations are also adopting guidelines, but their focus is on the interoperability and reusability of learning objects. While there are commonalities, there are also significant differences between how education and industry view quality and approach e-learning. This article analyzes education guidelines and industry specifications for e-learning published by professional organizations. Key factors within, as well as across both approaches are identified and discussed to inform those considering the adoption of standards and the establishment of a quality assurance system for e-learning. (Contains 3 figures and 7 tables.)
