Wonderful report, it addresses multiple dimensions of quality improvement in open education. Recommendation of mainstreaming e-learning quality with the traditional institutional quality assurance will be one of the key factors that will gravitate major stake holders, the industry and students to influence the development of quality in open higher education.
