ABSTRACT
The higher education world is changing consistently and deeply following the direction given by the governments' educational programs, by the information and communication technology advancements, and last but not least by the individual contributors naming here specialists researchers, teachers and students all together. Also, the work force market requirements have an important role in determining the strategies which will be implemented by the higher education organizations when organizational, administrative, and financial decisions are made by responsible functions. One of the new terms brought by the new developments of the educational programs was the term "quality", a term which very rapidly has become a very important one. Initially, the Quality Management Systems were specific to manufacturing domains. Soon such systems have become compulsory to many other areas. Today, around the world, the higher education organizations are looking to design, develop, implement and continuously improve their Quality Management Systems having as an ultimate goal to support a significant increase of al over performances. Even the educational systems have their own balances/checks or measurements scales which were used to prove the teaching and learning effectiveness there has appeared the necessity to rather guarantee the effectiveness of teaching and learning than to prove such effectiveness. One of the pillars supporting the fundament of a Quality Management System consists from the core criteria used to design and develop the system. This paper is looking to put at-a-glance some of the Quality Management Systems models developed for E-learning by different higher education centers around the world focusing on the core criteria used. Also, the article provides the author own view about core criteria as a leading parachute for developing efficient Quality Management Systems for E-learning.
