Quality Framework

Digital Education Quality Framework

The online learning quality framework is a reflective and evaluative tool that is intended to contribute to high quality online learning. Users are encouraged to examine online learning using each of the eight categories.

The first two categories – Infrastructure and Institutional Capacity – provide points to consider at the early planning stages of online development. The remaining six categories support the design and development of online courses and programs.

Each category outlines subcategories and reflective questions to support development and design of online learning courses. Examples and resources are provided wherever possible.

This framework can be used as a starting point, or as an anchor when designing online courses. It can also be used as an evaluative reference after the design and development of content is completed.
