The Florida SUS 2025 Strategic Plan for Online Education includes performance indicators and goals for the three elements in the Plan: Quality, Access, and Affordability. Concerns about quality are one of the barriers to the adoption and growth of online education. In the Quality element, strategic goals focus on quality practices, encouraging universities to adopt these practices, and the rigorous assessment of online student success and persistence.
A quality online education framework should focus on the instructor, individual courses, support services, and the program. The framework should be viewed as best practices for quality in the design, development, and delivery of the courses, and the professional development of the instructor. In order to support instructors as they continuously adapt to learn new technologies and adopt best teaching and learning practices, the university will provide a robust offering of teaching-centered professional development opportunities.
