National Standards for Quality Online Learning
The National Standards for Quality Online Courses, Online Teaching and Online Programs have been the benchmark for online programs, districts and state agencies since 2007.

Quality Online Learning

Oversight of the National Standards for Quality Online Learning has transitioned from iNACOL to the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance (VLLA), Quality Matters (QM), and the Digital Learning Collaborative (DLC). Together these organizations provide oversight and lead a broad-based community effort to keep the standards current and relevant.
