Norah Jones, Arthur Morgan, David Turner

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Existing quality assurance arrangements do not consider the variations in design and delivery opportunities offered through the utilisation of emerging technologies and its application in non-traditional forms of educational arrangements. One particular form of delivery, aided by technology, is on-line delivery, either to the workplace or the home. This mode offers considerable significance for developing the role and principles of work-based learning in providing a much broader population the opportunity to participate in higher education. This article reviews the development of the online E-College and its role in work-based learning with particular focus on the arrangements for quality assurance.
