About this book

This book considers several aspects of providing quality education at a distance:

-Quality of systems that support online learning, quality support infrastructure, quality of technical access and support, materials distribution; issues in each of these areas are considered.

-Quality of teaching and learning experiences, including a range of institutional projects using online technologies and issues of quality provision as well as areas of current and needed research.

-Measuring quality - evaluation and assessment looks at recent research in working towards sustainable quality learning by considering quality evaluation as a collective process.

-Administration and policy to support quality education @ a distance including institutional approaches to assuring quality and identification of differing perspectives for consideration.

Quality Education @ a Distance contains the papers presented at the working conference of Working Group 3.6 (Distance Education) of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). Held in Geelong, Australia in February 2003, the conference was organised in four parallel streams to consider the aspects grouped above, sharing presentations and discussions about establishing quality online environments for distance education.
The QED conference attracted some of the key people in their fields both internationally and from within Australia. In addition to the papers presented at the conference, Quality Education @ a Distance contains an overview of each stream and a report of the discussions that took place in the stream groups. The papers presented by three international keynote speakers are also included.
