Description & Coverage
Description:

Within the past decade, many higher education institutions have begun to offer degree programs online, but there are a lack of resources for institutions to rely on when choosing to introduce an online program. With the prevalence of technology in education, the importance of providing quality distance education programs cannot be ignored.

Ensuring Quality and Integrity in Online Learning Programs is an essential reference source that delves into the requirements and essential technologies needed to create and encourage effective and inclusive online educational programs. The book examines and offers best practices for all factors that contribute to building quality online programs including faculty buy-in and training; student motivation, interest, and retention; program planning, pedagogy, and design; program administration; and the use of appropriate and up-to-date technology. Administrators, educators, online program directors, instructional designers, curriculum developers, faculty, researchers, and students will benefit from the emerging research contained within this publication.
