Becoming UK and Ireland National Partner for epprobate has focused my mind even more upon quality. I became an epprobate quality reviewer because our thoughts on quality are similar, I became a head reviewer because I enjoy leading reviews and working with like-minded people. Epprobate have now kindly labelled me a “Quality Expert”, although I never think of myself as this. I suppose my concentration upon quality issues has raised my knowledge to a good level, so perhaps if I compare my knowledge to those in the day-to-day struggle to produce and support ODL, I do have a level of expertise. Even so, I feel that this is not for me to decide. It is the same with any expertise; others can judge your ability only when you apply your knowledge.
I believe that getting the quality right in our courses is the ultimate proof that we care; for our content and our technology but most of all for our learners.
