Abstract: Managing any educational programme has its challenges, and this is no different for online delivery. Literature and research provide considerable insight into challenges associated with the pedagogy of adult learning; the design and maintenance of quality online programmes; learning management systems and technology solutions; and assessment – all issues which are critical for the students’ success and the institution’s reputation. This paper describes the New Zealand higher education scene and the online programmes offered by one regional provider. It looks at the critical challenges management have faced in developing and maintaining these programmes and in particular, assessing student learning. We outline the risks and benefits of some alternatives to the current method of summative assessment, and conclude by offering recommendations for further investigation into the utilisation of technology in the delivery of quality summative assessment for distance learners and a call for a community of practice to discuss our progress.
Keywords: online, education management, assessment
