The purpose of this study is to explore and propose an academic administration and organizational model appropriate for enhancing the educational quality of digital distance universities. This study employs a comprehensive cross analysis of a diverse set of information including literature review, analysis of e- universities, survey of expert opinions, benchmark analysis of e-Learning enterprises, and survey of e-universities. We propose an academic administration and organization model for successful educational service. This model shows that e-universities should be equipped with detailed services on both the faculty and staff sides of the academic administration, instruction-learning support, student aid, and educational evaluation, and that these services also need support in the form of organization. The model also emphasizes flexibility and dynamism that connects services and organizations and enables timely provision of services and top-level receptiveness.
