Abstract

Opening Keynote, 25th ICDE World Conference, Tianjin, China, October 16, 2013 by Professor Asha Kanwar, Commonwealth of Learning // The three key words in my presentation are Quantity, Quality and Technology. 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 and review how Open and Distance Learning has developed its own quality systems. I will then focus on two emerging areas, OER and MOOCs, which will require new perspectives on quality. Finally, I will suggest some of the ways in which technology can help us achieve both quality and quantity.
