[DEOS-L] DEAC Announces Peer Review Process for Non-traditional Distance Ed Providers

This may be of interest to K-12 online programs looking for a non-proprietary option.

From: Russell Poulin <>

Hello DEOS-L subscribers –

The Distance Education Accrediting Commission created a new quality review process for distance education providers that are not traditional institutions.  The Approved Quality Curriculum is a peer review process using a standard rubric to access the quality of these offerings.  In today’s blog post we look both at the AQC itself and also at the overall interest by policy-makers and regulators in what to do about non-institutional course providers.  We all need to be aware of what is happening in this space:

Congratulations to Leah Matthews and the whole DEAC team for the innovations  in creating AQC.
