Abstract

Managing quality and ensuring continuous quality improvement of existing and new blended learning programs in adult education is the main focus of the research presented in this paper. Adult education centers in Flanders offer education for a highly diverse audience. Due to its flexibility of access and learning mode, blended learning is becoming more and more attractive for adult learners, especially for those who have to combine their studies with work, family and social responsibilities. As in many other settings, there is currently no common quality assurance framework for online and blended learning programs (OBL) in Flanders. In this research, we explore the usefulness of the self-assessment methodology of the e-learn maturity model (eMM) for online and blended learning programs in adult education. We present the results a pilot study and explore the validation of eMM for OBL in adult education.
