QUALITY ASSURANCE IN DISTANCE LEARNING - A Study in Higher Education

Gianna Oliveira Bogossian Roque, Gilda Helena Bernardino de Campo, Marcus Vinícius de Araújo Fonseca

Abstract

The preoccupation with forming graduate students of distance learning courses in Brazil, and those which aim at forming teachers, have raised concerns, especially with regards to formation consistency. According to our viewpoint, formation consistency is linked to two factors: reliability, which relates to the ability of the Higher Education Institution to provide a service in a correct, safe and careful manner; and applicability, which we understand as the possibility of applying the knowledge acquired during the professional and social life of the graduate student. This study presents the preliminary results of a research aimed at verifying the students’ perception of a Licentiate in History about formation consistency in higher education offered at the distance learning modality.
