Evaluation Criterion for Quality Assessment of E-Learning Content

E-Learning and Digital Media Volume 11, Number 6, ISSN 2042-7530


Research trends related to e-learning systems are oriented towards increasing the efficiency and capacity of the systems, thus they reflect a large variance in performance when considering content conformity and quality standards. The Framework related to standardisation of digital content for e-learning systems is likely to play a significant role in the coming years. Specifically in formal e-learning systems, delivery of technically apt and qualified content is of utmost importance and must undergo scrutiny from experts in the related fields. In this research, a framework is proposed in the form of an instrument survey to evaluate the quality of digital content and its performance in an e-learning platform. Evaluation is made under seven primary criteria with multiple item questions to assess the performance of subject e-content in an e-learning environment. The survey is primarily designed to be incorporated to assess the quality of electronic education in higher education courses in Saudi Arabia. The evaluation framework is developed using an expert-oriented approach using reviews from a panel of 42 experts in the higher education field. This instrument survey presents a basic structure for evaluating and assessing potential of an e-learning digital course. This structure will facilitate standardisation and classification of e-content.
