Confidence in Online Degree Programs

Tayeb Basta
Abstract—Electronic learning is a type of education where the medium of instruction is information and communication technologies (ICT). E-learning can be defined as the application of information and communication technologies to core institutional functions such as administration, materials development and distribution, course delivery and tuition, and the provision of learner services such as advising, prior learning assessment and program planning. E-Learning can be either blended learning in which the technology is used to enhance the face-to-face teaching, or it can be purely online learning, that is, the delivery of courses completely through information and communication technologies. This paper reports the different point of view about e-learning education in general and its credibility in particular. It demonstrates that one of the important factors of the e-learning credibility is the quality of assessment employed to measure how learners perceive the information. The paper recommends a way by which such assessments should be held to preserve the educational standards on one hand, and guarantee confidence in online learning, on the other.

Index Terms—Online, e-learning, e-assessment, confidence.
