The University of the West Indies (UWI) currently operates in a context of increasing demand for higher education,with a recognition that globalization has made the environment highly competitive. With this in mind the University has been promoting the use of online learning. In January 2006, the Computer Centres on the three campuses identified a total of 444 online courses. These courses represent only those offered through campus information technology services (CITS). The proposed conference paper will reflect on the findings of a baseline survey of online courses offered by the University with respect to course configuration and activity. This study guides the initial stages in the development of quality control and assurance for online offerings at The UWI.
