Application Of The ELQ Model In The Quality Assessement Of Distance Education Taught At UPPUEBLA
The purpose of this study is to examine the quality of e-learning offered by Universidad Politécnica de Puebla by applying the ELQ Model (E-Learning Quality). The preliminary results show that the ELQ model scored a 100% in the areas of communication, collaboration and interactivity. On the other hand, for material and content items, the virtual environment, student assessment, flexibility, technical and holistic support, the percentages of achievement were equal to, or greater than, 60%. For the other areas such as experience, vision, institutional leadership and resource allocation, the percentage of achievement was less than, or equal to,50%. It is believed that designing, implementing and evaluating an institutional vision based on organizational leadership, holistic training and continuous improvement, will contribute significantly to achieving the desired quality in this educational modality.
