The evaluation issue has acquired a significant importance in the last years and has increased the concern about the analysis of the educational practices’ quality. This article deals with the concept of quality and asks about the different aspects that define it. It develops certain criteria that allow assessing a good e-learning practice. The first aspects that are necessary to define are: (a) the pursued purpose and (b) the Institution’s structural configuration. Good practice evidences are: a direct relation between the program proposal and the intervention context; coherence between theory and practice; presence of interactive and multimedia materials together with permanent interaction; strategies and devices especially designed to support learning; appropriate technology; permanent evaluating research; and a clear human resources policy.
