The International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) recently released the second version of National Standards for Quality Online Courses. The standards selected are based on the original standards, the results of a research review and survey of online course quality criteria. These quality standards were evaluated and assembled into an easy to use document for evaluating online courses with common benchmarks.
