Quality Control Measures at Institute of Distance Education, University of Swaziland, Swaziland
The system of distance education is a ray of hope for mass education among people of Swaziland. It would attract a large number of students for different programmes in future, and, may fulfil the country’s requirements of competent manpower. This is possible only when the system imparts a quality education which is not inferior to that which is offered by Conventional system. It would not 8 only bring quality in present programmes, but also, would help in launching new programmes in near future by the Institute of Distance Education. The University of Swaziland has accepted to adopt and adapt as well as develop Open Education Resources in collaboration with the Commonwealth of Learning (COL). Further work in this area needs a quality production and its use among Swaziland people. A large group of people need material in OER format in their own Swazi Language for their family health issues. They are farmers who need from time to time material for enhancing product quality. Open Education Resources (OER) developed in local Swazi language will be more effective if quality norms are followed by the course developers called by the Institute of Distance Education being part and parcel of University of Swaziland. Thus, it seems to be an urgent activity if the University of Swaziland has to bring distance education programmes at par with the conventional programmes. // Paper ID 438
