Abstract: E-teaching and E-learning are the latest trends in education. Much has been written on the content, the technical know-how, and the benefits of offering courses and tutorials online. However, the literature lacks discussion of how we can be assured of the quality of these online courses and tutorials. This paper describes five quality assurance strategies adopted by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Library when producing its Information Literacy Tutorial (http://library.ust.hk/serv/skills/infoliteracy.html): project management, best practice benchmarking, user needs assessment, usability testing, and formative evaluation.
