Abstract
Keynote Address, Distance Education Programmes in a Digital Age: Good Practice Guide, Workshop hosted by SAIDE and CHE, Johannesburg, South Africa, 3 October 2013 by Professor Asha Kanwar, Commonwealth of Learning // My topic today is ‘QA for DE in a digital age’. After a brief review of the context of HE today, I will look at the trends in QA in Higher Education in the last decade. I will share with you some of the ways in which COL has responded to the challenges of QA and provided support to Member States. Finally, I will conclude with two emerging areas, OER and MOOCs, which will require QA agencies to embrace new perspectives and protocols.
