The Integrated Quality Assurance Model in the Context of Online Education, Gabriela CURPÄ‚NARU

The purpose of this paper is to elaborate an integrated model of education quality management in accordance with the present requirements of online education. From a conceptual viewpoint, we have noticed lately a redimensioning of the notions related to education quality, in a direct relation with the social preoccupations, regulations and norms. The models of quality assurance within the school organization constitute an essential factor for the successful performing of education. In accordance with the most recent requirements of online education, an integrated model for education quality assurance is framed. A quality culture ranging from the student-teacher interaction to the interaction mediated by the use of the technology specific to online learning is endorsed within the education system, with the aid of the integrated model.
