QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The Rules of e-Learning: It’s not what you know about quality; it’s what you do with that knowledge that counts.

I was at a university awards ceremony this week, where one of the new Fellows spoke about how the graduates had so much going for them; they had the knowledge and had worked hard to get it but in order to reach their full potential they had to use their knowledge. I have often found that putting knowledge into practice is easier said than done.

In some cases it is easier to show we have the knowledge – our qualifications and the certificates that go with them is one example, another might be the number of research papers we have to our name. The same could be said for quality, where there are many courses offering knowledge and trained quality assurance assessors holding certificates as proof of their knowledge.


Practical application is less honoured and more difficult to judge; the expression ‘one man’s meat is another man’s poison’, springs to mind here. In this respect good practice in quality is subjective and to assume that we can have a fixed opinion of quality is not correct. Students are steadily being offered the chance to pass their opinion on a course and we can display this.

So, how does this apply in e-learning?

Don't shoot me until you have  taken a look! Good online learning is good online learning whatever VLE you use. I think that this document provides a very useful reference framework for measuring and identifying good practice
