In Vol 12, No. 4 (2015), our own Tony Peña co-authored an article on quality control in distance learning. In it, the authors note the lack of a unified standard in this area. They call out the utility of using the one from SACS (for institution-level quality control) and another, the Quality Scorecard for the Administration of Online Education Programs (for a micro-level look at things like course design). Comment: This is good stuff, and it illustrates the challenges involved with applying standards to this dynamic aspect of higher education. Still, it illustrates the need for a standardized process every school could use, not just the ones accessing these tools. You know, like a programmatic accrediting agency focused on DL programs in otherwise-accredited schools. (I'm looking at you, DEAC!) Thanks, Tony. Great stuff.
