Abstract

Finding ways to assure the quality of e-learning is an important endeavor. This article identifies eight quality assurance strategies in use at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. The eight strategies are reviews of instructional design, web development, editing, usability and accessibility, maintainability, copyright, infrastructure impact, and content and rigor. The impact of each of these strategies is discussed as well as how the strategy has evolved during implementation and operation. The university's e-learning courses have achieved some measure of merit for quality within both their local audience as well as nationally and internationally. Much of this is due to the application of the quality assurance strategies shared in this article.
