The key changes that have taken place in higher education and the working market during the last decades lead to increasing number of institutions that provide e-learning. Issues that are significant for both providers and consumers include the quality assurance (QA) of the e-learning and the recognition of qualification. Generally there are three levels for obtaining QA: institutional, national and international. In the growing globalization and the student exchange schemas, the international QA is becoming extremely important. In that context, the number of bodies and organizations that provide international recognition of e-learning has increased too, and each of them defines its own QA procedures for evaluation and quality recognition. The paper provides an overview of international quality labels and their quality evaluation schemas.
