There is increased demand by students for the flexibility afforded by online courses, and many post-secondary institutions are feeling pressured to expand their online offerings in order to retain or attract students.

What tools and frameworks exist which lend themselves to supporting the development of online courses which lead to quality learning?

This interactive session will explore the strengths and weaknesses of different quality assurance instruments such as the Quality Matters Rubric, the QOLT Rubric and the Quality eToolkit.

We will analyze these tools and collectively identify measures most critical to quality online learning in BC. This session provides an opportunity to look closely at and compare quality assurance tools. 

Our discussions will encourage a critical approach to quality assurance tools when considering how they fit into your courses and institutions.
