Quality

Important Note: As eCampusAlberta winds down its operations, the Quality Suite has come temporarily offline. We will post news of where the Suite will reside online as soon as the details are available.

eCampusAlberta has been committed to providing faculty, course designers and others involved in creating online courseware with resources that enable them to offer high quality online education to students and supporting them with the services they need to succeed.

The Quality Suite review process has included strategic analysis, surveys, stakeholder consultations, and a formal comparison of eCampusAlberta standards with close to 40 existing quality standards including the renowned Quality Matters program hosted by Maryland Online and Enterprise and Advanced Education’s CAQC standards.

The eCampusAlberta Quality Suite includes the Essential Quality Standards, Quality eRubric, Curricula Self-Assessment Scorecard.

Essential Quality Standards 2.0

Grounded in research and best practice, the Essential Quality Standards outline 27 requirements in seven categories — Web Design, Course Information, Organization, Pedagogy, Writing, Resources and Technology.

Quality Standards 2.0 Booklet

The Quality Standards 2.0 Booklet contains the complete set of quality standards. This rubric may be used to assess existing courses or those under development. It may also be used as a guide by faculty and online curriculum developers for planning purposes.

Self-Assessment

The eCampusAlberta Quality Suite includes a self-assessment that enables those involved in course development to conveniently assess course progress at any time.
