Abstract

This paper is based on theoretical and empirical research on e-learning course quality dimensions in higher education, in the context of lifelong learning. The research was performed during the implementation of eLearning program project (Contract No. 2005-3872/001-001 ELE-ELEB14) aiming at investigation of cultural issues in the process of e-learning course development. The aim of this paper is to examine to what extent development of e-learning courses may contribute to openness to a wider community of learners in higher education with respect to growing learner needs and demands. In order to achieve the aim, the following tasks will be performed: the quality of an e-learning course will be discussed with an emphasis on learner perspective; also importance of learners' needs analysis will be discussed, and the results of an empirical study on experiences in an e-learning course will be presented. Critical course analysis and qualitative empirical research are used as research methods in this paper.
