Abstract

In these days when innovation and creativity have become crucial in online education programs and courses, higher education institutions should consider about the judgments of authorities about these novel activities, opinions of program development staff, and comparisons executed programs with its online education design. Therefore, the main purpose of this chapter is to discuss about how to develop and deliver transformative online education surrounded by egalitarian values of excellence in each stage of this action, and also global qualities which are vital in higher education. To integrate diverse and multicultural principles under any online education model in higher education, online learning should focus on the development, implementation and evaluation steps of its distance education system, and help all stakeholders decide whether they continue or terminate their online education.
