Book review - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning

Book review - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Book review by Shattuck  - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning: Models, policies and research.

Review published in: The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning

 

The book that Jung and Latchem pulled together provides much-needed discussion on just what quality assurance in distance education is. It also provides conceptual organizational models and practical strategies for continually working towards quality improvement and for transparently tracking and documenting outcomes. Most importantly, this book finally brings quality assurance from being a lofty ideal into the realm of practical discussion.
