Abstract

My topic today is ‘Emerging Issues in QA in online and distance education’. I will first look at the context of Higher Education and the emergence of online and distance education. I will then give an overview of the trends in QA in ODL and how some institutions in the Commonwealth have adopted QA over the last forty years. I will then look at three emerging areas which require QA agencies and institutions to embrace new parameters and protocols. Finally, I will conclude with how COL has responded to the challenges of QA and provided support to Member States.
