The Ufi (University for industry) has announced that is to adopt Institute of IT Training Technology standards for all its on-line learning ventures.

The move is a significant boost for IITT's quality standards as the on-line learning industry seeks to establish a recognised system of quality assurance.

UfI's Director of Learning Products Mary Benwell, who was close to the deal, said: "There is a clear need for recognised and widely accepted quality standards for the industry. This is vital if learners and employers are to have confidence in the e-learning revolution.

"The IITT's standards provide a robust quality framework for the industry and we will be asking all our suppliers to adopt them. This will be a phased process which will give our suppliers time to make any necessary adjustments to their quality systems."

Clive Shepherd, The Institute's TBT director, said: "The growing body of organisations adopting these standards means that learners will be able to embark on e-learning activities with confidence. We welcome the decision by UfI to adopt the Institute's standards and the clear message it sends to the TBT provider industry."
