OJDLA: Winter 2013 - Ensuring Quality in Online Courses: Applying the AACSB International's Distance Learning Quality Issues

Abstract

The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the Distance Learning Quality Issues published by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB-International) to document the various characteristics that high-quality online courses must possess. A content analysis methodology was employed to examine the seven quality issues to develop a high-quality framework to assist business schools’ faculty and administrators and other educators in planning, designing, evaluating, and continually revising online courses

Barry Dahl's curator insight, January 10, 1:55 PM

Findings and Discussion

Findings related to the two research questions under scrutiny will be presented in this section. The seven AACSB-International's Distance Learning Quality Issues include the following items: (1) mission, (2) students, (3) faculty, (4) curriculum and learning issues, (5) instructional resources, (6) intellectual contributions, and (7) business and institutional relationships (AASCB-International, 2007). As each quality issue is presented and discussed, recommendations will be given for its effective integration into teaching practices to deliver high-quality online courses in an attempt to develop a high-quality framework for the delivery of online education.

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: Building a community (2) | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

As epprobate, TOLDCo, and other partners around the world, grow as a community, we have found that our focus is changing from assessment of quality in online courseware with some guidance when needed, to guidance, mentoring, enhancing and supporting quality in online learning, with some assessment if required.  We have also found that our course for reviewers has a more general application, helping to provide the basis of a professional approach to Quality in Online learning.

Does easier eLearning authoring increase quality? | Anything and everything about eLearning

Does eLearning Improve as More People are Able to Create it?

I don’t think it necessarily does. The profusion of content and authoring systems do mean that it is easier to put together quality content, but they also make it easier to put together poor quality content. In my experience with teachers and multimedia/interactive content, it is quite difficult to get them even to evaluate it for their own use, let alone suggest useful modifications to suit their students (you can’t skim or scan a SCORM package, or even a Powerpoint presentation!). A lot of the material we have been trying to put together has been based around Study and Life Skills and the challenge is to make these engaging whilst still providing a valuable learning experience.

Quality in Online Learning: What Does that Mean for the Online Learner?

Quality in Online Learning: What Does that Mean for the Online Learner? | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

What does “quality” mean in online learning?

It’s an interesting question, one around which there is growing concern. There are so many ways to define quality that the conversation is often at cross-purposes.
When we talk about the quality of a course or a program, are we talking about outputs such as grades, degrees, competencies and jobs? When we say we have a high-quality offering, are we really talking about inputs? Is it about the expertise and national reputation of the faculty and/or the institution? Is it about the money spent and the production value of videos and other content in the course? Is it about the sophistication of the technology platform that can support large numbers of students? Or are we really, specifically, talking about the student experience in a course?
