Abstract

Twenty –two Colleges in Ontario Canada have formed a unique online learning consortium for part-time continuing education students that have grown from 365 registrations in 1995 to more than 65,000 annual registrations and 1100 available courses. OntarioLearn.com members actively share developed courses on 5 different LMS platforms to help broaden their student market reach and avoid duplication. Quality standards became the benchmark that colleges used to determine whether a particular course could be offered through their institutions. Establishing an agreed upon quality assessment tool was the first hurdle along with the required policies and practices to ensure adherence. This paper will describe the collaborative process, provide the quality standards tool, and describe how quality assurance is managed. Implementation challenges will be discussed along with ongoing continuous improvement strategies currently underway.
