Students equate cheap courses with poor quality

"Thousands of the cheapest university places are not being filled following the introduction of varied fees due to potential students worrying that their cut-price status means the courses are not worth the money."

Quality assurance: are you about to make or break your digital learning?

Quality assurance: are you about to make or break your digital learning? | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it
Quality assurance has had a slightly murky history. It’s a part of the production process that is often poorly defined, and has sometimes been seen as little more than a necessary but annoying hurdle to be rushed through before a course is released into the wild. At Kineo, we have always resisted this way of thinking and have embedded quality assurance throughout every stage of what we do. The last ten years of elearning and LMS production have taught us that if you want people to keep coming back, ensuring quality isn’t just an obligation to fulfil: it should be an integral and essential part of everything you do – at every stage of production.

Technology-related quality standards for e-assessment - TeSLA Project

Technology-related quality standards for e-assessment - TeSLA Project | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it

A set of quality standards and indicators focusing on the technological point of view has been designed to support educational institutions in the design of e-assessment as well as for the (continuous) quality assurance and enhancement of e-assessment.


The standards and indicators can be used by the project partners in preparation of and during the implementation of the pilots in order to verify whether the new TeSLA system meets the technological-quality expectations. 


 The technological aspects will form part of the quality assurance framework for e-assessment which will be developed in the course of the project. The pilots will provide feedback on the accuracy, applicability and effectiveness of the standards.

Enhancing Quality of Technology-Enhanced Learning at Jordanian Universities

Enhancing Quality of Technology-Enhanced Learning at Jordanian Universities | Quality assurance of eLearning | Scoop.it
“Enhancing Quality of Technology-Enhanced Learning at Jordanian Universities”, eQTeL, is TEMPUS project number 544491-TEMPUS-1-2013-1-ES-TEMPUS-SMGR, approved by the European Commission under grant agreement for 2013-4568. 

The wider objective of eQTeL is to promote reform and modernization of higher education in Jordan through the introduction of a national quality assurance system for technology-enhanced learning.​ Its main objective is to improve, develop and implement accreditation standards, guidelines and procedures for quality assurance of TeL courses and study programs at a national level. The new standards will assimilate the quality of Tel courses offered by higher education institutions in Jordan, and would consequently be incorporated into existing legal acts and regulatory documents at both institutional and national levels. Implementation of the new standards will be ensured through establishing a capacity building programme that provides extensive training for all levels of staff involved in accreditation or delivery of TeL programs, from teaching staff, trainers, evaluators, official accreditation reviewers and higher education public authorities. The project will also seek the possibility to develop a close connection with the Bologna 3-degree cycle structure to allow for better definition and positioning of the training programmes.
