Abstract:E-learning development goes along with an increased attention to its quality. Quality management is based on the control not only over learners’ knowledge but over learning process, its organization and applied means, as well.
The issue of quality management is being complicated due to the development of technologies and necessity of integrating diverse pedagogic and technological instruments into a unified learning environment. PLE and MOOC exacerbate the task of quality assurance in e-learning in an absence of common regulatory instruments and require searching for new solutions. These solutions should ensure individualized education on the one hand, and solved management tasks concerning the monitoring of quality in education on the other hand.
This paper presents the research results of Tomsk State University experience in e-learning quality assurance basing on such indicators as the quality of learning materials, delivery systems, communication, and learning process support. Opportunities for managing these indicators are reviewed with the help of LMS MOODLE with basic instruments and specially designed services as a part of university information learning environment and infrastructure.
