The quality of online education is a central issue for the sustainable delivery, development and future of technology-supported learning. A significant issue in this regard is that while there is a free and growing market in e-learning, there is also a proliferation of benchmarks and quality guidelines. This demonstration presents an overview of the multiple meanings of quality and benchmarks. While a consensus as to what constitutes quality in online education is emerging, there are nevertheless competing agendas at play.
