Guidelines for online education & showcases


The handbook is designed to provide guidance and information on the impact of e-learning and other aspects of application of ICT in higher education on the design and its integration within insitutional and national of quality assurance processes. It distills information and experience of the operation of the e-learning quality assurance labels designed by the project partners and the outcomes of discussions and surveys conducted with institutions and agencies during the project that are presented in greater detail in the accompanying case study documents. These studies have indicated that there has been significant progress at institutional level in the development and adaptation of their quality systems but that there is limited evidence of specific processes or requirements being defined within national quality assurance systems.
