The approach to developing quality within WikiEducator will be threefold:

  1. First, it will be community based where the members of the WikiEducator community can collaborate to set the approach to quality.
  2. Second, it will be founded upon the growing body of knowledge related to educational quality. Particularly, the research focused upon Open and Distance Learning (ODL).
  3. Third, it will be based upon the e-Learning Maturity Model.
