  8. 8.  Did you study how the process is controlled? Know the role of accreditation: “the goal standard of education, symbolizes the effort to uphold standards and ensure the quality of degrees” (Maeroff, 2003, p. 177). Study the regulation issues, “whether accreditation should concern itself more in the digital age with the access to information and with student capabilities for getting that information in new kinds of online libraries” (Maeroff, 2003, p. 184).
  9. 9.  Did you study how the process is controlled? Discern the faculty connection. The medium of the online courses needs immediate interaction with the students and “can take on a life of its own and readily into a 24/7 proposition” (Maeroff, 2003, p. 191). Ensure the intellectual property rights, that is the way how, “ownership of electronic courses could be evaluated along a continuum” (Maeroff, 2003, p. 193).
