Nowadays, it is very important to ensure the high quality of e-learning on a global scale. Therefore, the online checklist which could give a helpful guideline to ensure a high quality is required. In the current project, we chose 60 kinds of items for the checklist selected and categorized it from Japanese viewpoints of quality guarantee and established a Web check list. The system could diagnose the quality assurance by the designers themselves for e-learning materials, using self-diagnosis results. And in addition, the user can analyze his/her e-learning course statistically, according to the accumulated data on the web. We asked the teachers joining e-Help, a special group among some higher educational organizations for e-learning and credit transfer in Japan, to try the web for their self-checking. And then the data collected from the web was analyzed and the results were discussed.
